We are still recovering from a night at Museum of Liverpool we will remember forever! We were so honoured to have Yoko and Sean Ono Lennon for the opening of the exhibition, Double Fantasy – John & Yoko.

Yoko gave a heartfelt opening speech, sharing her love for Liverpool and how much it meant for her to have the exhibition in John’s hometown.

‘Thank you for making a beautiful, beautiful show. I have never seen anything like it. Only Liverpool people could do it. Now I feel like I am your family. I feel like I am home”

We’ve had a wonderful response from visitors who have seen the exhibition so far:
