Live: Gaumont Cinema, Bournemouth

6.30pm, Monday 19 August 1963 (50 years ago)

The Beatles embarked on another six-night residency at a seaside town on this day. This time it was at the Gaumont Cinema in Bournemouth.

The group performed two shows on each night, with support from Tommy Quickly and Billy J Kramer and the Dakotas. On this first night they held a 20th birthday party for Kramer in their dressing room after the first show.

The Beatles stayed at the Palace Court hotel on each night of the residency.
