TO mark 50 years since The Beatles played Abergavenny Town Hall, a local shop is urging other businesses to create Beatles inspired window displays.
June 22, 1963, was the day The Beatles played their one and only performance in Abergavenny Town Hall. The Beatles took to the stage at 10.30pm after John Lennon flew in by helicopter from an appearance on Juke Box Jury in London. Just 600 fans saw them perform, each paying 12s/6d for their tickets.
The Beatles played a 20-minute set before attending a civic reception by the mayor and mayoress of Abergavenny, Councillor and Mrs JF Thurston and then spending the night in the town’s Angel Hotel.
