The Beatles 50 Years Ago Today : Saturday, June 15, 1963

City Hall, Fisherton, St. Salisbury, Wiltshire

A surprise date with Jaybee Clubs, the promotion which had booked the Beatles into the historically important March 31, 1962 Stroud engagement. This show was arranged in April 1963 for the huge fee of £300, but as the date approached, Brian Epstein began to have serious misgivings about the Beatle's safety in such a venue. He offered Jaybee £200 to cancel the booking, but was turned down. Over 1,500 people crowded into the City Hall.
