The Beatles 50 Years Ago Today: July 13, 1965 (Tuesday)

Savoy Hotel, The Strand, London

Paul went this lunchtime to the Savoy Hotel in centtral London to collect from Sir Billy Butlin, five Ivor Novello Awards on behalf of the Beatles. He arrived late, however, having forgotten about the event, while John - also supposed to attend - failed to show at all. The entire luncheon, including Paul's acceptance of the awards and his thank-you speech, was filmed by Rediffusion TV cameras.
