Live: St Paul’s Presbyterian Church Hall, Birkenhead

This was the first of two performances by The Beatles at a “beat session” held at St Paul’s Presbyterian Church Hall on North Road in Tranmere, Birkenhead.

The Beatles headlined the show, with support from The Zeroes. Entry cost four shillings, and the event took place from 7.30-11pm.

The group returned to the venue on 10 March 1962. The church hall was later demolished, with housing built on the site.

Part of this performance was filmed on cine camera. It was later bought by Pete Best’s brother Roag, and a brief snippet appeared in Peter Jackson’s video for The Beatles’ 2023 single ‘Now And Then’.
