Come Together 2000

An Exhibition of Beatle Art

For the last seven years the Liverpool Academy of Arts has been staging its annual Beatles exhibition. This year's exhibition is the third in succession to be staged at St George's Hall.

Each year the exhibition runs for longer and will be open to the public from the 24th July through to the end of August covering the entire period that the Hall is open to the public. It attracts many tourists and, of course, coincides with the Beatles Convention.

The exhibition has paintings, sculpture, fashion, poetry etc. the only stipulation is that work must have a theme relating to the Beatles. It may range from a portrait of one of the Beatles to an abstract representation of a aspect of their songs or events in their lives. Although mainly intended as a showcase for Merseyside talent we also have contributions from as far away as New York.

Below you will find a few sample paintings from the exhibition. Just click on an image to see it full screen. The exhibition is open Monday to Saturday between 10.30am and 4.30 pm until Friday 31st Augst. For a map showing how to find us see

How to Find St George's Hall

The Beatles exhibition is not the only thing to see at St George's Hall - As well as the world famous Minton tile floor there is:-

 

The "Come Together Cafe" which, as well as serving excellent Beatle 'flavoured' food (Hapiness is a warm bun), also has Beatle pictures around the walls including the thirty foot backdrop from the stage production 'Sergeant Pepper's Magical Mystery Trip'

 

A photographic exhibition celebrating the twining of Liverpool and Shanghi

 

Raymond Wong's photographic exhibiton - "St George's Hall in Camera".

 

Afternoon performances of Gilbert and Sullivan's 'Trial by Jury'. Up until a few years ago St George's hall combined the function of civic hall and criminal law courts with with law courts at either end of the huge central hall. In one of these courts Liverpool Grand opera Company performs Gilbert and Sullivan's populaer one act operatta 'Trial By Jury'
