Check out this great video uploaded to youtube by Mike Chitty! This should bring back some fabulous memories for those who attended the 40th anniversary celebrations of the day that John met Paul in 1997. It certainly made us even more excited as we prepare to celebrate the 60th anniversary from July 5-9 this year!
Woolton Liverpool 5th July 1997
On Saturday 5th July 1997 – 40 years after John Lennon first met Paul McCartney in St Peter’s Church Hall – the Quarry Men Skiffle Group travelled through the streets of Woolton village on the back of a lorry, as they had done on 6th July 1957, and performed in the grounds of Bishop Martin Primary School. A Beatles-themed fete was held, and recorded messages from Yoko Ono and Paul McCartney were played. Apart from the Quarry Men, the other performers in 1997 included ‘Ringer’ from Scotland and ‘Smile’ from Liverpool.
