The Beatles live: Majestic Ballroom, Luton

The Beatles’ first concert in Luton, Bedfordshire, took place on 17 April 1963. They returned to the town on two subsequent occasions, but never to the Majestic Ballroom.

This was The Beatles’ first of three visits to Luton. They subsequently performed at the Odeon Cinema on 6 September 1963, and at the Ritz Cinema on 4 November 1964.
