From Thursday 1 August 2019, the John Lennon Peace Statue will be available to view in the south-side of St George’s Hall (accessible via the Visitor Entrance on St John’s Lane).
The stunning artwork, which is 180cm high and made of bronze, is the creation of artist Laura Lian and has been cast by Castle Foundry.
General Manager of St George’s Hall, Alan Smith, said: “We’re delighted to host this statue showcasing one of Liverpool’s most loved sons. In the month of August, the city celebrates International Beatle Week and it’s fitting that we welcome this new addition. It’s sure to be a hit and will become a must-visit selfie and Instagram spot.”
Artist and Creator, Laura Lian, said: “I made the statue to help inspire a new generation to reinforce John and Yoko’s message of Peace. We are really excited to have the statue at this beautiful historical Hall in Liverpool.”
The statue will be travelling from Somerset after its maiden launch at the Glastonbury Festival 2019.
