Beatles Merseyside Venue to be Auctioned

BIRKENHEAD’S former Majestic Ballroom famous for its ties to The Beatles is due to be sold at auction next month.

Built as a cinema in 1916 and most recently a Chinese restaurant, the property’s dance hall and music days gave The Beatles a stage to perform their debut single Love Me Do for the first time.

The fab four returned and played at the venue 17 times in the 1960s.

At one sell-out appearance the crowd was so large that a further two shows had to be arranged to accommodate disappointed fans who had been unable to get tickets.

Strawberry Field Plans Approved

The Salvation Army has launched an £8m funding drive to help bring forward its redevelopment of Strawberry Field in Woolton after the project was given the go-ahead by Liverpool City Council’s planning committee.

The committee approved the plans at a meeting on Tuesday morning. The former children’s home on the site, built in the 1970s and named John Lennon Court, will be demolished to make way for a training centre for young adults with learning disabilities, a visitor centre, and community café. The current buildings have been vacant since 2007.

The Fab Four were caught on camera by actor Leo McKern while on location in the Austrian Alps for the 1965 movie Help!

McKern was cast as Clang, the leader of a mystical cult determined to recover a ring from Ringo Starr’s finger which would enable a sacrifice to proceed.
