John Lennon's first wife, Cynthia Lennon, and their son, Julian, are to launch a new exhibition featuring memorabilia in the name of a new charity.

White Feather: The Spirit of Lennon is being held in conjunction with Liverpool’s Beatles Story museum, and will feature possessions and images of Lennon’s family life. The White Feather Foundation is also the name of a charity currently being set up by the pair, focusing on environmental and humanitarian issues.

“The white feather is so prevalent in my life,” said Julian Lennon. "One thing for sure is that it’s always represented peace to me. And one of the things my father said to me was that should he pass away, if there was some way of letting me know he was going to be ok, or that we were all going to be ok, it was by in some way, shape or form presenting me with a white feather.

“I hope this exhibition lets people see another aspect of his life and our time together as a family. This collection represents something of great importance to us as it is part of our history.”

The exhibition opens at the Mersey Ferries terminal building at Liverpool’s Albert Dock on June 17 and runs until December 31. More information can be found at the official website.
