Strawberry Field was a Salvation Army children's home in Woolton, a suburb of Liverpool, England.

Lennon grew up near the home and used to play in the wooded area behind the building with his childhood friends, Pete Shotton and Ivan Vaughan. In 1967 the name became world famous through the release of The Beatles single Strawberry Fields Forever, xls medical written by John Lennon and Paul McCartney.

Strawberry Field had an annual fête, which John Lennon and his aunt Mimi regularly attended. One of Lennon's favourite events as a young boy was the garden party that took place each summer in the grounds of Strawberry Field. Lennon's Aunt Mimi recalled his reaction: As soon as we could hear The Salvation Army band starting, John would jump up and down shouting, 'Mimi, come on. We're going to be late.'

Strawberry fields closed it's doors as a children's home in early January 2005 and is now a church and prayer centre. The famous gates marking its entrance still stand and are well visited by Beatles fans.
