This year, Shrewsbury will be celebrating all things Fab Four with the Shrewsbury Beatles Weekend. On September 20th, 21st and 22nd there will be a whole range of events in the town including live music, tours, special guest speakers and Beatles film screenings. On the 19th our preview event is a 2-hour boat cruise with live Beatles music by Tony Stanton.
The weekend will finish with a concert at Theatre Severn featuring – from Liverpool – the top Beatles tribute band, The Mersey Beatles.
There will be additional events across Shrewsbury including musicians presenting live renditions of Beatles songs in the cellars of The Buttermarket, a venue reminiscent of the legendary Cavern Club in Liverpool where the Fab Four first attracted attention.
Five great Beatles films will be screened at The Walker Theatre on Friday and Saturday – ‘Backbeat’, ‘Looking For Lennon’, ‘Good Ol’ Freda’, ‘A Hard Day’s Night’ and ‘The Beatles: Eight Days a Week’.
