Beatles Day staged at Albert Dock Liverpool

The fourth annual Beatles Day is being celebrated in Liverpool with Beatles tribute bands playing at venues across the Albert Dock.

Visitors have been encouraged to dress in 60s clothing for a fancy dress competition at 1500 BST and Beatles wigs are on sale at venues in the dock.

A Fab Four themed treasure hunt has been arranged for children.

The event's organisers said that the day was also "a celebration of all things Liverpool".

Jeremy Roberts, chairman of the Albert Dock Tenants' Association said: "Beatles Day is a fantastic celebration of the Fab Four and we are thrilled to host this year's event at the Albert Dock.

"The day is going to be action packed with music and entertainment, with all of the dock venues getting into the spirit with special offers and prize giveaways.

"We have been working very closely with the organisers to make this year's Beatles Day the best ever, and we are really looking forward to welcoming people from far and wide to join us."
