When John met Paul: a 60th anniversary

On 6 July 1957, 60 years ago this summer, John Lennon and his band The Quarrymen followed a marching band through the streets of Woolton to play at the annual St. Peter’s Garden Fete. That afternoon he met Paul McCartney and together they went on to change the face of music forever.

 

 

To celebrate this anniversary, Liverpool will step back in time to replicate the Fete and the Grand Dance at the Church Hall. This will be a community collaboration with the Church and Bishop Martin School where the original Fete took place. St Peter’s Church Hall will be open for visitors to stand on the very spot where Paul ‘auditioned’ to join the Quarrymen.

 

All the elements of a typically English garden fete will be celebrated, including the children’s fancy dress party, the Crowning of the Rose Queen and the procession of The Quarrymen on a flat back lorry through the village. Amongst the many attractions will be games, cake sales, refreshments, and much more and, of course, dancing to the live music of The Quarrymen and other artists. The procession with the Quarrymen will begin at 2pm, with the garden fete officially opening at 3pm. Admission is £2.50 on the door.

Many other events will be taking place from Wednesday 5 July to Sunday 9 July to celebrate the day that John met Paul. To find out more please visit beatlesatstpeters.co.uk
