This was the last of three Monday night performances at Queen’s Hall in Widnes, Lancashire. It was the third time The Beatles had performed in the town.
The Monday shows were all promoted by Brian Epstein’s company NEMS Enterprises. The Beatles headlined each one, but the support acts varied.
The Beatles played in Widnes a total of five times, each one at Queen’s Hall. The other dates were 3 and 10 September 1962, 22 October 1962, and 18 February 1963.
