The Beatles made a personal appearance at Brian Epstein's central Liverpool record store, NEMS, prior to an evening concert in Mold, Wales.
They signed copies of the recently-released Please Please Me single, and gave a brief acoustic performance at the foot of the store's staircase.
Unfortunately no recording of the performance is known to exist.
