The Beatles live: Carlton Theatre, Kirkcaldy

This was the second of a three-date Scottish mini tour promoted by Albert Bonici. The Beatles performed two shows on this night, each of which was seen by 1,500 people. The other acts on the bill were Houston Wells and The Fortunes.

The concerts were originally to have taken place at the Raith Ballroom in Kirkcaldy. Due to a decision by Brian Epstein that The Beatles would only perform in theatres, the booking was moved to the larger Carlton Theatre.

This was The Beatles’ only visit to Kirkcaldy. The Carlton, which stood on Park Road, opened in 1937, and was later used as a bingo hall. It was demolished after a fire in 1972.
