A Global 50th celebration of John Lennon’s Imagine in collaboration with Yoko Ono Lennon and The Charlatan’s Tim Burgess will be hosted at Heswall Hall.

The venue has been granted special permission to screen John and Yoko’s 1971 conceptual film featuring the songs from the iconic album and additional tracks.

The film is being screened at grassroots music venues around the world, including at Hard Rock Cafe’s and Hotels in North America and Europe.

Heswall Hall, on Telegraph Road, is the only venue in the Liverpool City Region hosting the free screening of Imagine 50 at 7:30pm on Thursday, September 9.

Yoko Ono Lennon said: “John and I were both artists and we were living together, so we inspired each other.

“The song ‘Imagine’ embodied what we believed together at the time. John and I met – he comes from the West and I come from the East – and still we are together.

“We have this oneness and ‘the whole world would eventually become one’ is the sense that we will all be very happy together.

“All these instructions are for people for how to spend eternity, because we have lots of time.”

Fans from around the world can join Yoko and her son Sean Ono Lennon to watch the film together.
Over the last five decades, Imagine has become a timeless global anthem of unity, hope and happiness.
 During the screening, Tim Burgess, of 90s indie band The Charlatans, will be hosting his wildly popular Tim’s Twitter Listening Party.

Viewing of the film will be enhanced by real-time participation on social media from Yoko Ono Lennon, Sean Ono Lennon, Imagine’s bassist Klaus Voormann, keyboard player Nicky Hopkins and drummer Alan White, from prog rock band Yes.

During the film, additional photos, quotes and multi-media about the making of Imagine will be shared as viewers watch the classic film and join millions around the world listening to Imagine.
