The Beatles at the Astoria Ballroom, Oldham

One day after recording their first LP Please, Please Me and with John Lennon's voice completely shattered after attempting two takes of Twist and Shout, the Beatles headed off to Oldham, Lancashire (Greater Manchester Area) for a concert at the Astoria Ballroom.

It was their first and only appearance here, and according to some sources they even played a gig in Sheffield/Gleadless at the Azena Ballroom. We have a copy of the poster to prove it.
