Summer Fun for all the Family at the Beatles Story!
With The Beatles being discovered by a new generation every year, the Beatles Story provides the ideal fun, family day out for all ages! To reflect this, summer 2009 sees the Beatles Story once again hosting a number of exciting workshops designed to keep the kids occupied while also giving them to chance to learn about the best band in the world!
Throughout the summer our award winning Discovery Zone will also be open for families to enjoy. Employing the latest, groundbreaking technology our fully interactive learning centre will allow young and old alike, to learn about The Beatles’ music, the times they lived in and their influential legacy.
The Discovery Zone is staffed by specialised facilitators who will be on hand to answer your questions and ensure you have a fab time. Guests will have the opportunity to create their very own newspaper, select a song at 1950’ NEMS record store, create their own Beatles inspired artwork and play a Beatles tune on a giant piano!
Add to this our new ‘family friendly’ audio guide (specially designed with kids in mind) and a number of special ‘Family Saver’ ticket discounts and you have the perfect fun filled day for all ages.
