Join the John Lennon Treasure Hunt in Liverpool

John Lennon fans are being invited to take part in a prize-winning treasure hunt around the late Beatle’s Liverpool this weekend.

The special event on Saturday, July 6, has been organised to mark the release this month of Mind Games (The Ultimate Collection).

It is being presented by Universal Music Group and the John Lennon Estate, in association with Red and Grey Creative.

The family-friendly treasure hunt starts at Liverpool Town Hall at 9am, where a map created by artist Ed Fairburn and marking locations in the city with a special relationship to Lennon will be able to be collected.

Treasure hunters will need to track down special QR codes and photograph them with their phones.

Everyone who takes part in this event will get a chance to win a prize depending on how many locations they capture - and the first person to scan the QR codes at every location will win the grand prize of a Super Deluxe Mind Games (The Ultimate Collection) box set worth £1,350.

Yoko Ono says: “The first place John took me to after we got together – guess where – was Liverpool! He was proud of the city he was born and grew up in. John had a very warm view of his past. He thought of Liverpool as a place that was incredibly wonderful. I didn’t hear that from many others at the time.

“Some people who leave the city they were born in or grew up in say ‘thank God I left.’ But John always thought it was a great place and he loved it.

“In the last week of his life he was planning to go visit his England on the QE2. He wanted to go to Liverpool and show the city he was from to his son Sean.

Mind Games (The Ultimate Collection), which is released on July 12, has been produced by Sean Ono Lennon.

It puts listeners in the centre of the studio and explores the album’s 1973 recording sessions at the Record Plant in New York City, from inception to the final master, through scores of unreleased outtakes, unadulterated versions, instrumentals, stripped down mixes, studio chatter and more, revealing how these fan favourite songs evolved and came to life.
