THE DAY JOHN MET PAUL
THIS EVENT WILL TAKE PLACE AT ST. PETER’S CHURCH CHURCH RD, LIVERPOOL L25 5JF
ADMISSION £2.50 ON THE DOOR
On 6 July 1957, 60 years ago this summer, John Lennon and his band The Quarrymen followed a marching band through the streets of Woolton to play at the annual St. Peter’s Garden Fete. That afternoon he met Paul McCartney and together they went on to change the face of music forever.
This year, on 6 July 2017, 60 years to the day, we will be celebrating the anniversary of The Quarrymen’s performance at the Fete, and the day John met Paul. We will step back in time to replicate the Fete and the Grand Dance at the Church Hall. This will be a community collaboration with the Church and Bishop Martin School where the original Fete took place.
All the elements of a typically English garden fete will be celebrated, including the children’s fancy dress party and the Crowning of the Rose Queen. Amongst the many attractions will be games, cake sales, refreshments, and much more and, of course, dancing to the music of The Quarrymen and other artists.
10 years into the future, the 1967 Summer of Love, another marching band was born. 2017 also celebrates the 50thanniversary of Sgt Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band. It’s safe to say that The Beatles may not have happened if it had not been for the 6 July 1957 – the Day John Met Paul.
