I’m a Beatles Tour guide in London – something I have been doing full time for the nearly 30 years. I also wrote the book, guide to the Beatles London.I have been a Beatles fan since I was 13 years old – my passion is also my living. In that time I’ve been lucky enough to meet 3 of the Beatles.Last year, I organised the event to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Beatles crossing Abbey Road for the famous album cover photo. Well over 1000 people turned up! The event was on the front page of the ‘Guardian’ newspaper, and was on TV around the world.
Unfortunately the current crisis has meant I could not do tours on the street. Since we started up number on tours are 10% of the normal for the time of year. The new restriction brought in yesterday have made things even harder. But I will be back, better than ever. Please help me survive this current crisis. If you would like to come on a future tour, it would be great if you could pledge now to tide me over until this crisis ends. You can them come on a tour for free when you like :>) Please pledge at https://payitforward.london.gov.uk/london-beatles-walks
If I can raise £2000, that money will be matched by the Major or London ‘Back to Business’ campaign, which will be invaluable. I need to raise money to improve my marketing of my tours and to purchase new equipment – for instance, I would like to buy a 360 degrees camera to use on virtual tours.Thank you for your help! I look forward to meeting you on a tour in the not too distant future :>)
I also very much want to keep this blog going!
