The Beatles’ First Gig

Written by: George Chittenden : 15 Sep 2019

This incredible photo was taken on the 9th December 1961. They say that “Oaks grow from acorns”, and it’s reassuring to see that even the Beatles had to start somewhere. In this photo they played for eighteen people at the Palais Ballroom in Aldershot, Hampshire.

Before the gig they visited both coffee bars in the town offering free admission to anyone interested in seeing a rock 'n' roll show! Not many people turned up, but within two years they would become superstars.
