View details of the approved Strawberry Field planning application

Strawberry Field, in Beaconsfield Road, Woolton, was the Salvation Army children's home that inspired the song 'Strawberry Fields Forever'. The ornate metal gates of the original Victorian house have become an essential part of the Beatles' Liverpool itinerary. Now the site is being redeveloped as a training facility and visitor attraction, due to open this summer. It will incorporate a café (open to all) as well as an exhibition highlighting the work of the Salvation Army and John Lennon's childhood memories.

Allister Versfeld has been a Minister with the Salvation Army for the past 19 years. He now has the title 'Mission Development Officer (Strawberry Field)', and his role is to look at how the resource of Strawberry Field can be used across Liverpool and the wider Merseyside area. He will be talking through the history, the redevelopment and what is at the heart of the project as they prepare to 'Open the gates for good'.
