A new Liverpool tour based on the life and passions of George Harrison will be held next week, to coincide with what would have been The Quiet Beatle‘s 72nd birthday.

Tour guide Jackie Spencer says a highlight will be a visit to Aintree Racecourse, where 60 years ago a young George saw Stirling Moss win the British Grand Prix. This began Harrison’s lifelong interest in auto racing. Still active at age 85, Moss is sending some items as souvenirs for tour-goers.

The all day extravaganza also includes time at the Hard Day’s Night Hotel and the Jacaranda Bar, which re-opened last year. The club, where the Beatles played in 1960 before moving to the Cavern, is now decorated with photos of The Beatles and Brian Epstein, as well as fellow Liverpudlian and Epstein client Cilla Black.
