The Beatles 23rd March 1963 gig at Newcastle City Hall
Formed in Liverpool in 1960, The Beatles – John, Paul, George and Ringo – are now regarded as one of the most influential bands in music and cultural history.
In 1963 they were touring the UK when they arrived in Newcastle for the first time in January playing the Majestic Ballroom, before returning in March to play Newcastle City Hall on the Chris Montez/Tommy Roe Bill.
In 1963 Newcastle City Hall was one of the foremost music venues in the country and in its history has hosted such acts as The Rolling Stones, Led Zeppelin and David Bowie.
This is a recreation based on an existing poster from another venue on the same tour, slightly rejigged and with the City Hall’s details added.
It is uncertain whether posters were created for the gig and none have survived, or whether none were produced.
It has been recreated from scratch in high resolution and none of it has been cut and pasted from elsewhere which would compromise it’s quality.
It is A2 in size and printed locally (to Newcastle) on high quality satin paper.
Every penny of the profits made from these posters will go to my Great North Run fundraising in aid of Teardrop, a support group for families who have experienced the death of a baby through miscarriage, stillbirth or neonatal death.
