JUST weeks after Liverpool Council announced it would no longer be hosting the famous Mathew Street Festival, a Wirral bar is hosting an alternative event for fans of the Fab Four.
The Coda Maine, in Hoylake, will play host to Beatles fans for the day on Saturday March 30.
Owner Martin Moseley said: “We are really excited to be hosting an event dedicated to The Beatles.
“It is a shame that the Mathew Street Festival has been cancelled, but we absolutely love The Beatles and so we thought it would be a fantastic idea to have our own event to showcase the fantastic musical talent in Merseyside.”
The event, named Beatles Mainea, will see a host of talent from the North West perform in a day-long tribute to John, Paul George and Ringo, including one of UK’s top McCartney tribute act and a DJ set from The Coral’s Nick Power.
Martin added: “We are really pleased with the amount of musical talent we have on board.”
As well as 10 talented musicians from the area, the bar will be serving free Liverpool-themed food and will be giving away a fancy dress prize for the best-dressed Beatle.
Taking place from 3pm until late, the free entry event will be in the bar at 2 Market Street, Hoylake.
