The Grosvenor Ballroom played an important part in the early development of The Beatles. The group played there a number of times in the days when they were just another unknown group. And, of course, when their drummer was fans' favourite Pete Best not Ringo Starr. Like many others, Pete Best was a young musician who wanted to play his favourite music as a drummer, so he joined a group called the Beatles... Pete was with them at the start of their epic journey from 1960 until he was dismissed by Beatles' manager Brian Epstein August 1962. Pete thought he was on the verge of the big time with the group. It didn't happen for him as his life changed on one fateful day........
Bestbeat tells this fascinating story using drama, humour and original songs performed by a live band. It's a show you won't want to miss!
