Mystery Host

Attendees are invited to bring along a Beatles or Beatles-related artefact, which our host will talk about for a timed five minutes, explaining an aspect of the Beatles’ vast history through that specific prism. The item can be anything at all – a photo, a disc, a document, a press cutting or magazine cover, a piece of memorabilia, a book, whatever Beatles-related souvenir takes your fancy or fires your imagination. The host won’t know the items in advance and will discuss them spontaneously and hopefully informatively before moving on to the next piece.
