An online Beatles fan club for and about Beatle fans
John is pictured with that same panda in 1965 and in 1967 with Julian.(MarkZapp)
This panda was given to the beatles by my mum (1st girl on left of pic) and her freinds at the apollo in Manchester. I wonder where that panda got too?
Hi im looking for someone to help me. It is regarding your documentary 8 days a week, the Beatles touring years. There is a shot in the trailer of the beatles with a panda. That panda was given to them by my mum (70yrs old on friday) and 2 of her freinds. Its an amazing story. Anyway im trying to find out what happened to the panda. Dont know where to start really so i thought id try here. Any help would be appreciated. Jen
Wow great question! And how I wish I knew the answer to help you. We know that John Lennon kept the panda and it was a toy that was in Julian's bedroom. But after John and Cynthia divorced -- where did the Panda go? Does Julian still have it? I would love to hear how your mom was able to give the well-known Panda to the Beatles in the first place. Anyone know what happened to that Panda?
