700 people packed in to the Civic Hall in Ellesmere Port to see The Beatles on this day – a sell-out for the venue.
This was The Beatles’ only booking in Ellesmere Port. Although a large industrial town on Merseyside, and just 19 miles from Liverpool, they didn’t play there on any other occasion.

I have an autographed ticket from this show and have been looking online, without success, for a photo from that night. Surely someone must have taken a snapshot…
