THERE’S A NEW CAFÉ, BAR AND JOB OPPORTUNITIES AT THE MAGICAL BEATLES MUSEUM.
A museum dedicated to the Fab Four is expanding to open a new café and bar after enjoying a bumper first six months. The Magical Beatles Museum was opened in July and hopes the new facilities, together with the relocation of the Liverpool Tourist Information Centre to its Matthew Street building in November, will further boost visitor numbers.
The attraction was launched by Roag Best, brother of ‘fifth Beatle’ Pete Best, with support of a tailored funding package from Lloyds Bank Commercial Banking.
Having secured and renovated the five-story Victorian Warehouse where the museum is based, Best now hopes to boost visitors by at least 70 per cent over the next 12 months, creating 20 new jobs.
The concept takes visitors on an interactive tour of Beatles history, with Roag’s 1,200 item personal collection telling the story each step of the way. Rare finds on display include Pete Best’s drumkit, George Harrison’s Futurama guitar and John Lennon’s Sgt. Pepper medals.
