Sergeant Pepper at Beeston Regis Church
Beatles fans are invited to come along to All Saints Church in Beeston Regis, near Sheringham, to enjoy Sergeant Pepper Saturday on June 3.
Can you remember 1967? Were you there? Fifty years ago, on June 1, 1967 the Beatles released their album Sgt Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band which included, among others, the tracks When I’m Sixty-Four, A Little Help From My Friends, She’s Leaving Home and A Day in the Life. You may also recall the iconic record sleeve designed by Peter Blake which, in addition to John, George, Paul and Ringo dressed in colourful military-style uniforms, featured images of many important people.
You are very welcome to come along to All Saints Church on Saturday June 3 to see their own homage to this famous artwork. You will also be able to view our flower arrangements inspired by the Fab Four and listen to live music whilst enjoying a cup of tea in good company.
Organiser Sarah Mapes says “Don your flares and shake the moths from your sheepskin jacket and gather at Beeston Regis for a Fab Saturday morning”.
The event runs from 10.30am to 4.30pm and will include light refreshments, a themed floral display, Beatles trivia quizzes, children’s colouring corner, and musical interludes throughout the day. Profits will go to the church's Hospitality Fund, especially their quest for a new toilet.
Sarah would also welcome donations of homemade cakes and second-hand paperbacks as well as volunteers on the day. Please contact Sarah Mapes or Judy Wilkinson (01263 825 364) if you can help.
