Historic Salvation Army Strawberry Field Gates go on Public Display

Jun 2, 2017 | by SNW

Fifty years since the release of The Beatles’ hit song ‘Strawberry Fields Forever’, the original red gates from the Salvation Army’s former children’s home have returned to Liverpool in England and go on public display at the ‘The Beatles Story’ visitor attraction for a limited time only.

The gates to the Strawberry Field site in Woolton became a point of pilgrimage for thousands of Beatles fans from around the world, until they were taken into protective storage in 2011.

Television viewers will also be able to see the original red gates in a special documentary being broadcast this Saturday, 3 June 2017. Sgt. Pepper’s Musical Revolution focuses on the Fab Four’s Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band album, which followed the launch of ‘Strawberry Fields Forever’ as a double A-side.

The PBS network will be screening the film on Saturday, June 3rd- check local listings for times.
