The Beatles’ 36th evening show at the Cavern Club, on Liverpool’s Mathew Street, took place on this date.

The night was advertised as “The Beatles’ Xmas Party”. Also on the bill were Gerry and the Pacemakers, and Kingsize Taylor and the Dominoes.

The precise number of The Beatles’ Cavern performances is not known, although they played at least 155 lunchtime and 125 evening shows between 9 February 1961 and 3 August 1963.

Overall this was their 104th known appearance at the underground venue, including their more common lunchtime shows.
