HE will be the second famous Lennon to visit the Rock.

Julian Lennon is to make an emotional visit to Gibraltar, where his Beatle father John got married in 1969.

The star in his own right, who lives in France, is due to make a flying visit on May 23.

Lennon in Gibraltar

The singer, the son of Lennon’s first wife Cynthia, is scheduled to visit the International Beatles Memorabilia and Julian Lennon Collection exhibition.

Show organiser David Giles told the Olive Press: “It’s a really exciting for us to have Julian visiting his own exhibition.

“It’s a massive coup for the Rock.”

The exhibition is a personal and intimate journey which portrays the story of his father, one of the world’s most iconic figures, through his eyes. It is the first time it has been out of Liverpool.

Gibraltar has a third connection with The Beatles, as Lennon’s own father Alf visited the enclave as a merchant seaman in the 1930s.
