Live: Cabaret Club, Liverpool

This was The Beatles' only performance at the Cabaret Club at 28 Duke Street, Liverpool.

In an attempt to expose the group to a broader audience, their manager Brian Epstein organised this show. It was not, however, a success, as The Beatles were ill-suited to the cabaret circuit.

The show was unadvertised, and the group were not well received by a largely mute audience. The Beatles were paid £15 for their work, which co-manager of the club Bob Woodward recalled being so loud that they made the windows rattle.

The building which housed the Cabaret Club has since been demolished.
