The Beatles live: Southern Sporting Club, Manchester

Following their appearance in Stockport, Cheshire on 13 June 1963, The Beatles drove 10 miles to the Southern Sporting Club in Manchester for their second show of the night.

The venue was originally known as The Corona, and was converted from a cinema to a dance hall in the 1950s. The Southern Sporting Club hosted cabaret and dance nights throughout the 1960s, and later became The Mayflower Club.

The club stood on Manchester’s Birch Street. It subsequently became the Stoneground heavy rock club, but burnt down in the 1980s.
