The Art of John and Yoko

About this video

Listen to Broadcaster and former BBC Radio Merseyside legend, Roger Phillips and Dr Holly Tessler, Beatles expert and Lecturer in the Music Department at the University of Liverpool celebrate what would have been John Lennon 80th Birthday. They explore John’s immense and unique talents in both art and music, the love for his wife Yoko and the passion for his home City of Liverpool, and the legacy he has left behind on a local and global scale.

With the highly anticipated opening of the University of Liverpool’s state-of-the-art Yoko Ono Lennon Centre in late 2021, alongside the launch of the MA in ‘The Beatles, Music Industry and Heritage’ in Autumn 2021, this will be the first in a series of regular events, which will celebrate the relationship, and on-going legacy, that Yoko and The Beatles have with the City, and indeed with the University, of Liverpool.
