Cavern Club residents to end day long celebration of 55th Anniversary of Beatles legendary Ritz Ballroom appearance.
55 years ago in February 1963 The Beatles made their legendary appearance at King’s Heath’s old Ritz Ballroom next to the Hare and Hounds. The Ritz Ballroom was one of four venues run by Irish Couple Ma and Pa Regan in the 1960’s.
Originally scheduled to appear in January, The Beatles had been prevented by blizzard like conditions from getting to the Ritz from another of the Regans’ venues – the Plaza at Old Hill. When they did make it on 15 February, they had just got to No. 1 in the charts with Please, Please Me and had to enter the rear of the venue from Milford Place by a ladder!
Now King’s Heath Walk Of Fame are delighted to present a unique day long celebration of this historic event on Sunday 11 February 2018
From 3 pm to 6 pm a great selection of local musicians will perform their favourite Beatles songs in a special pre-Valentine’s Day All You Need Is Love session at Fletchers Bar.
At 7 pm doors will then open at the Hare and Hounds for an evening concert by top tribute band Made In Liverpool to conclude Beatles Fest 2018.
Born and bred in Liverpool the band perform at venues world-wide with recent performances being as far afield as Russia, USA, Australia, Switzerland, Europe and the Far East
Originally named The Fab Four they were the first Beatles tribute band to play the Cavern when it re-opened and are mentioned in music writer and Merseybeat historian Spencer Leigh’s book ‘The Cavern, The Most Famous Club in the World’. And they still continue to play at the Cavern on a regular basis.
Their performance as The Beatles has been described as unique, uncontrived, exciting and mind blowing!
All the members of the band are accomplished musicians and several have appeared in musical productions about The Beatles at the legendary Liverpool Everyman Theatre and throughout the UK.
Expect to hear over one and a half hours of The Beatles Greatest Hits.
