Some of the images are well-known, but others have been rarely seen - like this cover of the 1966 album Yesterday and Today, taken by Robert Whitaker, which was quickly withdrawn and replaced ('Butchers' album cover 1966 © Robert Whitaker)

The Beatles by Michael Ward, February 1963 (‘Please use the litter bins’)

Using photos such as this Michael Ward picture of the band from 1963 as inspiration, visitors will be able to take part in a number of hands-on workshops, creating psychedelic prints and designing their own T-shirts (The Beatles 1963 ©Michael Ward)
