The Strawberry Field Exhibition
Strawberry Field is in Woolton, Liverpool, close to where John Lennon grew up.
He had a troubled childhood, removed from the care of his mother when he was just a few years old and brought up by an aunt. For John, The Salvation Army site at Strawberry Field was a place of peace and refuge but also a place to escape and enjoy in a turbulent world – a quiet spot where he could play with friends, climb trees and dream his dreams.
A new exhibition exploring the story of the place, the song and John Lennon’s early life will open at Strawberry Field – on the original site that inspired the famous song.
