Liverpool Culture Company has teamed up with The Beatles’ company Apple Corps and Cirque du Soleil to present the UK premiere of the documentary film ‘All Together Now’ on Friday May 30 at FACT in Liverpool.

‘All Together Now’ tells the story of the remarkable collaboration between The Beatles and Cirque du Soleil that resulted in the staging of LOVE, the spectacular show that is astonishing audiences in Las Vegas.

The film presents dozens of revealing incidents and encounters. Using archival material as well as intimate interviews with Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr, Yoko Ono Lennon and Olivia Harrison, musical directors Sir George Martin and Giles Martin, and the show director Dominic Champagne, this feature-length documentary is an intriguing glimpse of the artistic process from within the creative circle. ‘All Together Now’ directed by Adrian Wills at FACT, Wood Street, Liverpool – Friday May 30 at 6:15pm. The DVD will be released later in the year.

The following evening, also at FACT, Olivia Harrison and the Liverpool Culture Company stage a special tribute to George Harrison with a screening of ‘Concert For George’. This film captures rock music’s most celebrated musicians at The Royal Albert Hall in November 2002 paying tribute to one of their own. On a magical night, the first anniversary of George’s passing, the concert included stunning performances from Ravi Shankar and his daughter Anoushka, Eric Clapton, Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, Jeff Lynne, Tom Petty, Billy Preston, Joe Brown and many others. ‘Concert For George’ directed by David Leland at FACT, Wood Street, Liverpool – Saturday May 31 at 5:00pm.

Tickets will be on sale at the FACT Box Office on Wednesday 14 May, initially to FACT members (limited tickets) from 12.00pm until 6.30pm and then to all members of the public from 6.30pm. Drop in or call the Box Office on 0871 7042063.
