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

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.”
