For the first time ever, the incredible personal and creative relationship between cultural icons John Lennon and Yoko Ono will be the subject of a dedicated exhibition.
Commemorating the 49th wedding anniversary of one of the world's most famous partnerships, this exhibition tells the story of the love affair between the acclaimed avant-garde artist Yoko Ono and the Beatles musician and Liverpool native John Lennon.
Double Fantasy draws together personal objects and never-before-seen pieces from Yoko's private collection. These items document the couple's deep and powerful connection, expressed through art, music and film as well as their passion for campaigning for peace and human rights together across the world.
Visitors are able to see precious objects including Lennon's handwritten lyrics, original art and items from the couple's wedding outfits.
The exhibition is a rare opportunity to understand the life of John Lennon and Yoko Ono in their own words, in the city that stayed with Lennon for his entire life.
