The Brian Epstein Statue Project is being officially launched to create a lasting legacy to the man fondly known as the Fifth Beatle, Brian Epstein.
The statue will be revealed at the launch by the team behind the campaign on Thursday 19 September 2019 – which would have marked Brian Epstein’s 85th Birthday.
The Beatles’ former manager, Liverpool-born Brian Epstein, is credited with catapulting the Fab Four to global success. Yet there is no lasting tribute to recognise his role in history.
The Brian Epstein Statue Project team have wealth of experience and expertise across public art, publishing, theatre production, and the local Beatles industry. They are passionate that a lasting tribute symbol to Brian and all he achieved should be created and displayed in Liverpool.
Sculptor Andy Edwards is best known for his statues of The Beatles at Pier Head Liverpool. Andy has been commissioned to create a lasting legacy to Brian Epstein. He has produced a clay bust and maquette, which will be revealed at the launch.
There will be speeches from project manager, cultural campaigner and activist Tom Calderbank from The Brian Epstein Statue Project, and Sculptor Andy Edwards.
