All You Need Is Love: Beatles festival returns to Birmingham

All You Need Is Love Fest is set to return to King’s Heath next month, 56 years after the iconic group brought their Cavern Club show to the area’s Ritz Ballroom.

Joint organisers of the event Bob Prew and Ken Whittaker said: “It is quite remarkable to think that The Beatles once played a tiny ballroom on a King’s Heath side street.

“But they were later to be followed by The Rolling Stones and Pink Floyd as well as Birmingham based groups like The Move, The Moody Blues and Spencer Davis Group.

“We are determined to continue to honour this musical legacy with a series of mini festivals.

“We expect Beatles fans from all over the country to come to King’s Heath and urge everyone to buy tickets well in advance as both concerts are likely to sell out”.

From 3pm to 6pm the event will see a selection of local musicians perform their favourite Beatles songs to celebrate the occasion at Fletchers Bar opposite the ruins of the old Ritz Ballroom.

At 7pm doors will then open at the Hare and Hounds for an evening concert by top tribute band Made In Liverpool to conclude Beatles Fest 2018.
