Birthday exhibition at Lennon's childhood home

A new exhibition featuring John Lennon’s childhood belongings will be opened on Wednesday, July 20, at his Liverpool home. The show features a copy of Lennon’s Sunday School attendance sheet, one of his milk teeth, replica paintings which Lennon made as a boy, including pictures of footballers and native American Indians, several caricatures, a replica of Lennon’s passport from 1960 to 1970, copies of his post-war identity card, swimming proficiency certificate and other items, which were carefully chosen by Lennon’s widow Yoko Ono.

This unique collection of memorabilia will be displayed at Mendips, the semi-detached house where John Lennon was raised by his Aunt Mimi. The items came from personal family archives and can now be viewed in their original setting. The exhibition is to mark Lennon’s 65th birthday year and the 25th anniversary of his death.
