60 Years of the Beatles
Tuesday, Oct. 11 • 7 pm
Learn about the impact of the Beatles on the Chicago metropolitan area with historian John F. Lyons! Through the use of music, video and many unseen photographs from the 1960s, this highly entertaining presentation reveals untold stories of the Beatles’ visits to Chicago, highlights the unique connections between the Fab 4 and the Windy City and discusses the diverse cast of characters who were engulfed by the whirlwind of Beatlemania. This is a hybrid event. Tea and crumpets will be available for in-person participants to enjoy before the show. Registration required.
