For some reason we woke really early, like 6am and couldn't fathom why other than the sun streaming through the gap in the curtain. So it was a long morning to sit around twiddling thumbs before heading off to the Cavern Club. It didn't open until 10am you see, and when we did eventually arrive a minute or two after 10am, a huge number of school children were also waiting to go in.
Arghh, not good so should we wait until later??? But ever the gluttons for punishment, in we went following on behind. All the kids were marshalled into another room and boy were they noisy! So quickly we went for a look round before they reappeared and was immediately told that part of the club was off limits all day because of the school children! The management apologised for the inconvenience but I can imagine quite a few people may very well be annoyed especially as this may be their only chance to visit! I did manage a sneaky look round first while she wasn't looking and managed a photo or two.
With our visit curtailed somewhat we walked towards the WW11 museum operational rooms. But first a photo opportunity with one of the Beatles and a look at the Wall of Fame.
|Could be John? or maybe George? Do you know, I really couldn't tell!|
|The Wall of Fame. Every brick had a name of a band that had played in the Cavern Club|
|It says, Celebrating all those local artists that have had a UK No 1 since charts began in 1952 and who hold a special place in Liverpool's musical and cultural heritage.|
On our way to lunch at Wetherspoon we passed the Town Hall. A notice was pinned to the board,
|How exciting, The Queen to visit tomorrow. And a Happy Birthday to Wills|
|Town Hall where she will go onto the balcony to wave at her subjects. Hopefully we will be one of them.|
|Tiny isn't it.|
|The kids loved it and loads of money was going in the pot. Onto a winner here, me thinks.|
