A LIBRARY will host a discussion on the historic links between Wirral and The Beatles for National Libraries Day.
Ray O’Brien’s Magical Mystery Tour will look at the group’s formative years in the early 1960s, including their first gig with Ringo Starr at Port Sunlight’s Hulme Hall, on August 18, 1962.
The gig saw the classic line-up together for the first time at a Horticultural Society dance.
New Brighton’s Tower Ballroom, which was destroyed by fire in 1969, played host to the largest Beatles gig anywhere on the UK mainland, as well as 26 other performances, the most of any venue except The Cavern, in Liverpool.
The event takes place at Birkenhead Central Library on February 9 at 2.15pm.
Tickets are £2.50 or £2.00 for Friends of Birkenhead Library and booking in advance is essential.
