This was the first of The Beatles' six concert appearances at the Memorial Hall in Northwich, Cheshire.
The event was promoted by Lewis Buckley, who ran beat music shows in a number of venues across Britain. It was therefore vital that The Beatles put on a strong show, in order to obtain repeat bookings.
