The Beatles Story granted exclusive acesss to the new European John Lennon Educational Bus

1st May, 2013


Yoko Ono Lennon is heading to Liverpool to unveil the brand new ‘John Lennon Educational Tour Bus’ for Europe on Wednesday, May 8th, 2013

Yoko, along with special guests, will be in Liverpool for the European launch of the John Lennon Educational Tour Bus on Wednesday 8th May at the Museum of Liverpool. The event will be streamed live for a global audience. Yoko said about the event that “The educational bus is a huge success in the USA. But John would have been extra thrilled that it is now launching in Europe, starting in Liverpool, his home town."

Attendees will be able to preview this extraordinary vehicle before it sets off on an exciting tour of the UK and Europe. We are fortunate enough at The Beatles Story to be invited onto the bus to take a look around and ask the team questions. The questions asked to the team will come from ourselves and also fans of 'The Beatles Story' Facebook page and followers of the Twitter feed.

Plans for Lennon Bus Europe have been evolving since the first US Lennon Bus hit the road 16 years ago. Yoko Ono Lennon developed the outreach project with Executive Director Brian Rothschild and legendary music manager, David Sonenberg to provide young people with access to state of the art studios as a way of inspiring them to create original projects reflective of their ideas, values, and creativity. 

Like its original sister bus in the US, Lennon Bus Europe is staffed by a crew of three producer/engineers, and will include stops at local schools, colleges and festivals; providing free tours and workshops in which young people produce original songs, audio recordings, broadcast quality music videos and livestream events using state of the art equipment.

The UK & European tour schedule and interactive map can be found at www.lennonbus.org, where visitors can also see all of the content created on board. Plans are underway to further expand the project to China and Japan.
