Abstract:

The following article shows the specific activity of the Beatles Fan Club in Lublin, in difficult realities of the 1980s, and its evolution from a neighbourhood circle of interest to the fan club of international activity. The article outlines not only a general description of the history of the fan club, but also recollections of its members and guests, who participated in meetings of the Beatles’ fans, among others journalists: Jerzy Janiszewski, Hirek Wrona and the author of Beatlemania. Obsession or madness? Marek Szpejankowski. There are also presented numerous fan-club’s members, for example editor Peter Metz, and events, together with a description of fan-club gadgets, all against the backdrop of the realities of the eighties. One of the purposes of the article is to contribute to our knowledge about the life in the Polish People’s Republic as well as open a discussion about the unique cultural phenomenon that under the circumstances of communist Poland should not have come into being. The Fan Club events, information and milestones are arranged in a chronological order.
