This was the second of two performances by The Beatles held at St Paul’s Presbyterian Church Hall on North Road in Tranmere, Birkenhead.
The Beatles headlined the show, with support from The Country Four with Brian Newman. Entry cost five shillings, and the event took place from 7.30-11pm.
The group previously played at the venue one month before, on 10 February 1962. The church hall was later demolished, with housing built on the site.
