April 24, 1963. Performance at the Majestic Ballroom, Finsbury Park, London

Another of NEMS’ “Mersey Beat Showcase” presentations. This Top Rank ballroom was situated close by the Finsbury Park Astoria cinema where the Beatles would play on many occasions.

Two thousand fans saw The Beatles perform at the venue. The other acts on the bill were Gerry and the Pacemakers, The Big Three, and Billy J Kramer and the Dakotas - all of which were managed by Epstein.

This was the only occasion on which The Beatles performed at the Majestic Ballroom. Prior to the show they met scriptwriter Peter Clayton to discuss ideas for a feature film, although the plans never came to fruition.
