This weekend Liverpool will lead the way with a series of special events celebrating the 50th anniversary of the release of Love Me Do!
The celebrations begin at the Princes Dock, where thousands are expected to gather in a World Record breaking attempt, singing Love Me Do.
The timings for the attempt are:
- 10.00am - Arrival
- 10.30am - Rehearsal
- 11.30am - Break
- 11.50am - Record attempt
But the World Record Attempt is just the first event in a day of celebrations!
There will be a fantastic showcase of live music at Albert Dock all weekend! Between 12pm and 5pm bands and choirs will be performing in Anchor Courtyard, with even more live music at venues including PanAm and Circo. Don’t miss the special night-time projection on the Docks walls too!
Meanwhile, the world's most famous club, the Cavern Club, will mark the anniversary with special shows throughout the day.
From 2pm, the Cavern's resident bands, including the Beatelles, Liverpool's fabulous all-girl Beatles tribute band, will perform on the iconic front stage with FREE entry before 8pm (£3 thereafter).
Then, from 8.30, the Cavern's resident Beatle Band, The Cavern Club Beatles, will take to the stage for a theatre-style celebration in the Cavern's Live Lounge. Tickets are £12 and are available HERE!
