This was The Beatles’ first performance at Hambleton Hall in Huyton, Liverpool.
Entry was two shillings and sixpence before 8pm, and three shillings after that time. The Beatles topped a bill which also featured Derry & The Seniors and Faron & The Temptest Tornadoes.
It was booked by Wally Hill and Vic Anton, the promoters at the hall at the east of Liverpool. Hambleton Hall was a shabby municipal building which later became a probation office, situated on St David’s Road in Page Moss, Huyton.
The Beatles played at Hambleton Hall on 16 occasions. The other dates were 1, 8, 15 and 22 February; 8 and 20 March; 20 August; 3 and 17 September; 15 and 29 October; 12 and 26 November; 10 December 1961; and 13 January 1962.
