A song, a story, your chance to be part of history


Immortalised in the Beatles song Strawberry Fields Forever, this site of the former Salvation Army children’s home in Liverpool is part of the nation’s heritage. We want to open it to the public for the very first time, so that visitors can celebrate and enjoy it now and forever.

Your support can make this a reality

A place for reflection, a place of opportunity


The visitor experience will tell the story of The Salvation Army, the children’s home that once stood here, and the part that Strawberry Field played in the life of John Lennon and the Beatles. We will create a new training and work placement hub for young people with learning disabilities, where they can learn skills, gain work experience, grow in confidence and achieve.

You can help us bring Strawberry Field back to life

50 years since the release of that famous song, we want to open the doors to Strawberry Field once again. 

“The plans to open Strawberry Field to the public for the first time - so people can see a unique exhibition about the home, how and why the song was written by John, and allow visitors to explore the grounds as John did as a child - is very exciting.”
