Croydon 1963 Poster

The Mersey Beatles are heading to Croydon to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the Fab Four’s legendary shows at Fairfield Halls in the 1960s.

The historic South London venue is a special place for Beatles fans as John, Paul, George and Ringo famously played there at the height of Beatlemania – including two sell-out sell-out shows on September 7, 1963, when comedy great Freddie Starr was also on the bill.

To celebrate this diamond anniversary, The Mersey Beatles have created a special hit-packed show no fan of the Fab Four will want to miss.

Steven Howard said:“It’s going to be a brilliant night at Fairfield Halls. Not only are we celebrating 60 years of ‘Please Please Me’ topping the charts, but the diamond anniversary of The Beatles rocking Croydon – virtually 60 years to the day of our show!

“Playing Fairfield Halls has been on our bucket list for some time – it’s such a beautiful and historic venue.

 “Audiences at our shows always include people who were at The Beatles’ shows back in the day. They are up on their feet dancing from the very first song – just like they were in 1963. So, Croydon… get your dancing shoes on!”

Mark Bloor added:“When we play Fairfield Halls we will be playing many of the songs The Beatles did when they played Croydon in September 1963 when their set included the likes of ‘Love Me Do’, ‘Do You Want To Know A Secret’, ‘Please Please Me’ and ‘I Saw Her Standing There’.

“This is our biggest ever UK Tour and so we can’t wait to rock this historic venue– just as our heroes did!”
