This day school will explore and celebrate the story of The Beatles and the group’s rise to fame and extraordinarily rapid but troubled journey towards celebrity. We will examine the group’s legacy for Britain and the world following their controversial decision in 1970 to end, after less than a decade, one of the most intensely experimental and creatively original periods of artistic engagement known to the modern era. Was their fame part of a cultural revolution and if so what sort of culture did it promote? What is left of this 50 years later in twenty-first century Britain? Examining the songs and films through a mixture of historical context and musical appreciation, this day school will combine lecture and interactivity to explore what it was that made the phenomenon of The Beatles such a catalyst for change. Have we lived up to the dream?
