The three-day event, which features a mixture of music and poetry, takes place in the village of Durness, in an area where Lennon used to go on holiday as a child.

As well as featuring a talk by the late Beatle’s half-sister Julia Baird, the weekend boasts performances from King Creosote, John Cooper Clarke and Carol Ann Duffy.

German Beatles tribute act Lucy In The Sky are also set to perform at the event, which has a capacity of only 1,100 people.
