The Beatles perform at an all-boys public school, Buckingham

In April 1963 The Beatles were accustomed to performing in front of hysterical girls (and sometimes boys), but when they played at Roxburgh Hall (Stowe School) in Birmingham, the audience was quiet as a mouse.

Stowe School was an all-boys public school, and all the students stayed nicely in their chairs as they watched The Beatles perform. Reason for the invitation? A pupil from Liverpool, David Moores had contacted their manager (Brian Epstein) and they agreed to come down to Buckingham.

The Beatles were paid 100 pounds.

Nice detail : David Moores is the chairman of FC Liverpool :)
