Cynthia at Beatlefest

In September 1981, Cynthia Lennon and May Pang made an appearance at the New York Beatlefest. The insane thing about that (besides John Lennon ex-wife and ex-girlfriend appearing together) was that neither one of them was invited to the Fest nor where they speaking! They showed up to sell autographed pieces of Cyn's artwork (for only $30 each!). I do not believe you will see either one of these ladies (invited or uninvited) at a Fest for Beatle fans again. Such a shame too, since I would love to meet either one of them.


  1. Cynthia was living at May Pang's home while she was in the New York area. Her first art exhibit had opened that month at the Tower Gallery in Southampton. There would be no reason that she would need to be invited to Beatlefest as a seller. I assume she or someone paid for her to have a dealers table in the Flea Market like any other dealer at B-fest. Perhaps it was a last minute decision? What a lovely surprise for fans! Wish I'd been there.

  2. Oh, Cynthia was at a Beatlerama in 1994(?) in Toronto. She was very kind to everyone there. She hung around with Pete Best during her stay.

  3. Cyn really was a beautiful woman in these pictures
