Play About Lennon’s Missing Banjo-Fab Four Partners And Director Announced On Legend’s Birthday.


The very first tune I ever learned to play was ‘That’ll Be The Day’. My mother Julia taught it to me on the banjo, sitting there with endless patience until I managed to work out all the chords – John Lennon.

Yesterday (Monday, 9th October) marks what would have been the 77th birthday of the legendary singer, songwriter, musician, peace campaigner and Beatle John Winston Lennon.

And in just over six months time, new comedy play Lennon’s Banjo will premiere at Liverpool’s Epstein Theatre telling the fascinating and touching story behind the beginning of the singer’s musical journey, influenced by his mother Julia.
