The Beatles live: Gaumont Cinema, Bournemouth

The Beatles embarked on another six-night residency at a seaside town on 19 August 1963. This time it was at the Gaumont Cinema in Bournemouth.

The group performed two shows on each night, with support from Tommy Quickly and Billy J Kramer and the Dakotas. On this first night they held a 20th birthday party for Kramer in their dressing room after the first show.

The Beatles stayed at the Palace Court hotel on each night of the residency.
