Simon O’Rourke creating The Beatles

North Side

Over four magical days, Pier Head Village hosts the internationally celebrated and award-winning wood sculptor Simon O’Rourke as he takes us on four unique visual and musical journeys celebrating the greatest band of all time.

Over six hours each day – and using only his chainsaw – Simon transforms huge tree trunks into magnificent statues of the Fab Four, inspired by to the iconic Pier Head Beatles statues.

Once complete, the four will be revealed as the full band, before one of the History Channel’s most respected auctioneers conducts an international auction of all four pieces with proceeds going to Variety, the children’s charity.
