It has just been announced that the TV Studios where the Beatles filmed their appearances on ‘Ready Steady Go’, and their own TV special ‘Around the Beatles’ is to be turned into a theatre. They also made one of their first TV appearance there on the children’s show ‘Tuesday Rendevous’.
The studios were owned by Associated- Rediffusion TV and were called Wembley TV Studios. ‘Ready Steady Go’ was perhaps the best ever music show on television in the UK. The highlight was probably an amazing show starring Otis Redding. To see this show click here
Later, the studios became known as Fountain Studios, and hosted the X Factor – how the mighty fall!
The new theatre complex will open this autumn. For more on the new theatre click here
