Mayor of Liverpool set primary and secondary schools an art challenge to design or paint a picture based on Liverpool as a global city.

As a result, one of the prizes was for the children to work alongside artist Emma Bush.

Emma came up with the design based on the school’s links with St Peter’s Church and the Beatles. It was at the Woolton Fete on 6 July 1957 which was held on Bishop Martin School’s field where Paul McCartney first met John Lennon.

Emma took inspiration from Peter Blake’s cover of the Beatles Album ‘Sgt Pepper’s’ Lonely Hearts Club Band’.
