This was The Beatles’ second and final live appearance in Worcester. They had previously played in the city on 28 May 1963, also at the Gaumont Cinema.
This was the first of four consecutive concerts promoted by John Smith. Brian Epstein granted them as a result of the cancellation of several Mersey Beat Showcase nights earlier in 1963. The Beatles earned £250 for each of the concerts.
