Following the rapid sell-out of two public presentations in Abbey Road Studio Two, to take place on 10 March, two more talks have been announced for the following day.

The event – which, contrary to some press reports, does NOT include a tour of Abbey Road Studios – will provide an opportunity for the public to visit the revered studio facility and attend an insightful talk by Brian Kehew and Kevin Ryan, authors of the highly acclaimed book Recording the Beatles.

Devised to illustrate Abbey Road Studios’ long and diverse history, the presentation will address recordings by Sir Edward Elgar, Peter Sellers, The Beatles, Pink Floyd, Kate Bush and many others.

Visitors will also have the opportunity to see choice archive material from the EMI/Abbey Road archives, as well as vintage instruments, microphones and studio hardware used to create a wealth of classic tracks.

Two sessions will take place on 11 March: one at 10am and one at 3pm. Tickets cost £75 and are available from http://www.seetickets.com/Tour/ABBEY-ROAD-STUDIOS.
