A scene for the beginning of the Magical Mystery Tour film was shot on this day. Ringo Starr was filmed entering a shop and buying tickets for the tour from John Lennon.
The shop in question was the Town Newsagency at 90 High Street in West Malling, Kent. George Harrison was not present on the shoot, as he was bed-ridden with influenza.
