A display of lyrics behind the most famous songs of all time

Showcasing previously unseen material from Paul McCartney’s personal archive, our free Entrance Hall display celebrates the life and art of one of the world’s most successful songwriters and performers.

The lyrics and photographs span his career – from his earliest compositions through the legendary decade of The Beatles, to Wings and his solo albums to the present.

Open for everyone, this display accompanies the Beatles’ lyrics featured in our free Treasures Gallery alongside works by his literary inspirations Charles Dickens, Lewis Carroll and Virginia Woolf.

The display includes highlights from the 154 songs included in Paul McCartney - The Lyrics: 1956 to the Present published by Allen Lane this autumn, which recounts his life and art through the prism of songs from all stages of his career. You can pre-order now from our online shop.
