This was the first of four concerts given by The Beatles on Jersey in the Channel Islands. They performed at the Springfield Ballroom on Janvrin Road in the parish of St Saviour.
The Beatles' concerts on Jersey and Guernsey were booked by Jersey-based promoter Les De La Mare, who paid the group £1,000. The contract was drawn up between De La Mare and Brian Epstein on 30 March 1963.
Prior to the show, The Beatles spent the day go-carting and relaxing by the pool. Some fans had discovered where they were staying, but the group; were happy to chat and be photographed.
