The Beatles were just beginning to create the buzz which would later turn into full-blown Beatlemania and took to the stage of the Rialto in Fishergate to a rapturous reception.
Mr Hattersley-Colson, who turned 80 yesterday, was 29 at the time and remembers the band as being friendly and polite.He recalls they arrived by a big Austin Princess car, and stopped for a drink at the Edinburgh Arms.
He said: “They were nice young lads, there were no airs and graces with them. They were ordinary Lancashire lads like me.
“The show was fantastic, it went very well indeed. People who went never forgot it.
