Magnolia Court care home in Golders Green was transformed into the Cavern Club to mark Global Beatles Day on 25th June. The day celebrates the band’s music and also promotes their message of peace and love.
Rock group, The Beatles – John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr – was formed in 1960, the band initially got together in 1957 but went through a few name changes before settling on The Beatles. Pop history was made on 25 June 1967 when the band performed All You Need Is Love to 400 million people via the first global live TV link which is why Global Beatles Day takes place on this date.
General Manager, Octavian Stanciu said: “Lots of our residents are big Beatles fans and still love their music. We’ve had a fantastic day listening to all their hits, finding out about their lives growing up in Liverpool and what influenced them. We watched A Hard Day’s Night ! which brought back lots of memories for everyone. This afternoon we had a Beatles quiz, it is amazing how many songs they recorded. We all surprised ourselves by how much Beatles trivia we remembered!”
Bill resident ambassador at Magnolia Court said: “I have always loved The Beatles, they were the sound of my youth. Listening to all their old hits has brought back so many memories. We’ve all had a brilliant time reminiscing about dancing the night away to Beatles hits back in the day!”
