Event Description

The Beatles visited Tenbury Wells on 15 April 1963, playing at Bridge Hotel in the early days of their rise to being the greatest entertainment phenomenon in history.

Six months after stopping in Tenbury, the Beatles were topping the London Palladium; ten months after Tenbury, they were headlining Carnegie Hall; and their triumphs extended without interruption right through the ’60s. They were huge stars then, and somehow, 60 years on, they’re huge stars still.

Please join the crowds at our Regal Cinema to see Beatles expert Mark Lewisohn guide us through that history and launch our diamond anniversary festival of the Beatles in Tenbury Wells.

Mark Lewisohn – the writer – is the world authority on The Beatles. His many successful books include Recording Sessions (1988, recently republished) and Tune In (2013), which won the inaugural Penderyn Prize and is the first in a comprehensive three-volume history, The Beatles: All These Years. Mark is currently at work on the second volume of the trilogy.
