To celebrate the life of John Lennon, on what would’ve been his 79th birthday, The Beatles Story Liverpool are giving fans who share his name the chance to visit the attraction for free.

If your name contains either ‘John’, ‘Winston’ or ‘Lennon’ you can enter the award-winning exhibition for free on the Wednesday, October 9 only.

Born on the October 9 1940, the number 9 became John’s lucky number and seemed to follow him around during his life.

The Fab Four performed in the Cavern Club for the first time on February 9; signed a recording contract with EMI on May 9; made their famous Ed Sullivan Show debut on February 9; John and Yoko’s son Sean Ono Lennon was even born on October 9; and the list goes on.

Visitors can redeem the special offer at the admissions desk of The Beatles Story, found at the Royal Albert Dock in Liverpool, with presentation of a valid photo I.D, and cannot pre-book.

They will also receive a free souvenir upon arrival.

Fans of John Lennon will be interested to find that the exhibition features John’s spectacles and Jacket, both worn by the musician during his Imagine video.

It also features ‘John Lennon’s last piano’ which was played by John at Record Plant Studios, New York City just hours before he was tragically shot and killed in 1980.
