help-capeThe exhibition ‘White Feather: The Spirit of Lennon‘ was opened this evening by Julian and Cynthia Lennon at the Beatles Story venue in the new ferry terminal at the Pier Head.

After we’d had a look around the exhibition there was a question and answer session where the pair did a fine job of answering the usual questions about John,  times gone by, relationships, reconciliation etc.

I thought the most interesting bit was Julian’s explanation of his White Feather Foundation which is a sort of umbrella organisation helping various charities ‘For the Conservation of Life’. Like too many people, Julian seems to have a problem getting websites organised, both this and his own website are ‘coming soon’. There is a dedicated website for the exhibition though.

The exhibition is quite interesting once you get past the collection of gold disks, there’s some really nice pictures and some quite touching family postcards and letters. The videos and audio featuring Cynthia and Julian talking about various things are interesting too.

Apparently when John died Julian didn’t  inherit anything so he’s been steadily buying up items for the collection – difficult to imagine him spending hours bidding on ebay but maybe he has.

You can visit the exhibition on its own or as part of the Albert Dock Beatles Story. Details of admission are on the website.

  1. Hello Ian and Co,

    Wow, this exhibit looks great and makes us homesick for Liverpool! Good for Julian and his Mum, since they were a large part of John’s life … good to see someone besides Yoko carrying the torch. We just saw the fab exhibit up in BEthel of the Bed In for Peace, and hope to catch the new John Lennon one in NY at the Rock ‘n Roll Hall of Fame Annex. But hopefully we’ll get to see this too! Lovely pix by Minako.

    all our best,

  2. A fantastic celebration of life with John, conducted with taste by Julian and Cynthia. It’s great for the fans to see such personal belongings and very brave for the both of you present this to the public. The sentiment of the white feather is so moving. Julian your music is beautiful, will you release another album?
    Cynthia you have great strength and dignity, I offer my respect in truckloads to you. This is surely yours and Julian’s time to show John’s love for you both.
    Thank you for sharing these items with Beatles and John’s fans, I grew up a Beatles fan from age 12 until they split, I loved all of their music, every fan club record, every Beatles monthly!
    and like every anticipated song,the exhibition was an emotional rollercoaster.
    Thank you both so much
    Regards and much deserved respect
