Several people from Morningside of Jonesboro began this week of Lifestyle 360 taking a trip through British culture and history. The group traveled to Hardy, Arkansas to eat lunch at the Pig N' Whistle, a British themed venue owned by Philip and Rebecca Ashcroft. After a feast of Fish & Chips, Bangers & Mash, and desserts, the group then enjoyed the décor of British icons, Beatle's artwork, and British football paraphernalia.
The group then traveled east to Walnut Ridge, Arkansas to see the Beatle's Memorial Park and the incredible metal sculpted recreation by Danny West of Abbey Road. The piece honors the historic day in the town's history on September 20, 1964 when The Beatles tried to secretly board their large airliner in the small town of Walnut Ridge from a weekend vacation at Pigman's Ranch in Missouri between the last two shows of their North American Tour. Three teenagers realized who it was and "Beatlemania" took over.
