The Beatles at Grafton Rooms

The Grafton Rooms was a club in Liverpool, and no stranger to The Beatles. As the Quarrymen they had already performed there, and on Friday 3 August 1962 they appeared on stage for the first time there as The Beatles.

In total they would appear 4 times there as "The Beatles". The last time would be almost one year later, on 2 August 1963.

Concert promotor for this show was Albert Kinder (he regularly booked artists of the calibre of Chris Barber and Lonnie Donegan at the Empire and Pavilion Theatre) and The Big Tree and Gerry and the Pacemakers also appeared on the bill
