On this day The Beatles gave their 137th lunchtime performance at Liverpool’s Cavern Club.
The group’s lunchtime shows typically lasted from 12-2pm. This was their 242nd known appearance overall at the soon-to-be-famous cellar venue on Mathew Street in Liverpool’s city centre, including the evening events.
Although The Beatles weren’t there, in the evening Pete Best returned to the Cavern Club for a performance with his new group, Lee Curtis and the All Stars.
