Report and photographs by Dionne Ankrah

WOOLTON Village was overrun with tourists from all over the world as they celebrated 50 years when John Lennon met Paul McCartney at a Village fete on 6 July 1957. The celebrations started at St Peter’s Church, on Friday 6 July 2007 (the place Eleanor Rigby’s grave can be found) with a service of celebration with Rector Kip Crooks and The Bishop of Liverpool the Right Reverend James Jones. The evening entertainment then started at St Peter’s Church Hall, another one of the venues the Beatles played at in the early years, with a Grand Dance an evening of celebration hosted by Bob Harris and Colin Hall with a live performance from The Quarrymen.

Saturday 7 July 2007 at St Peter’s Church hall held a 50’s dance night which was hosted by Mike Byrne, a performance by The Quarrymen and Jukebox Eddie’s a 50’s tribute band. A must for all die hard Beatles fans was the event on Sunday 8th July which boasted live performances from The Quarrymen, The Mersey Beatles, The Mersey Cats and Pete Wylie. There was an excellent performance from M D Productions, the dance squad who was on the recent popular T.V show Britain’s Got Talent. This took place on the actual spot where Paul McCartney and John Lennon met on the field behind what is now Bishop Martin CofE Primary School, pupils from Bishop Martin also joined in the celebrations on the 6th July with children attending school dressed in Beatles fancy dress.

The weekend celebrations was organised by Angela Gillespie who was helped by Bishop Martin School PTA and members of the community said:- “The reason I wanted to organize this event was because it was such a huge moment in music history. I thought it would be a shame to let it pass with out recognition and originally it was only to be a 1 day event, but the whole weekend was a great success.”
