The Beatles Live at the Locarno Ballroom

On February 14, 1963, you could find the Beatles at the Locarno Ballroom in Liverpool. The concert was scheduled as a "Valentine Day Dance" and even though the Locarno Ballroom was a very famous venue in Liverpool, it was the first and only time that the Beatles would play there.

According to some Beatles' historians, the Quarrymen might have played the Locarno during one of their regular skiffle contests that were held there in 1958 or 1959

The Locarno was built in 1905 as a theatre and indoor circus, and served many other purposes during its illustrious career. A cinema, a naval depot, a ballroom and now an events hall.
