Top Tribute Band Made In Liverpool headline Beatles Fest 2018 on Sunday 11th February

55 years ago in February 1963 The Beatles brought their Cavern Club show to Birmingham for the first time when they made their legendary appearance at King's Heath's old Ritz Ballroom next to the Hare and Hounds. Now history will repeat itself when the current Cavern Club resident band Made in Liverpool bring their show to the Hare and Hounds on Sunday 11 February to conclude a unique one day celebration of this historic event.

The Ritz Ballroom was one of four venues run by Irish Couple Ma and Pa Regan in the 1960's. Originally scheduled to appear in January, The Beatles had been prevented by blizzard like conditions from getting to the Ritz from another of the Regans' venues - the Plaza at Old Hill. When they did make it on 15 February, they had just got to No. 1 in the charts with Please, Please Me and had to enter the rear of the venue from Milford Place by a ladder!

From 3 pm to 6 pm a great selection of local musicians will perform their favourite Beatles songs in a special pre-Valentine's Day All You Need Is Love session at Fletchers Bar. Expect a range of musical styles including the jazz soul of Blue Silk, the rockabilly of Harry & The Howlers, the folk rock of Mr Apollo, the Ukulele Theatre, the notorious and undefinable Eggmen and singer songwriters, Tim Walkerdine and Peters plays Lennon.

Originally named The Fab Four they were the first Beatles tribute band to play the Cavern when it re-opened and are mentioned in music writer and Merseybeat historian Spencer Leigh’s book ‘The Cavern, The Most Famous Club in the World’.

Celebrate the Anniversary of The Rolling Stones Birmingham Debut on Sunday 24 September

ABOVE: The Rolling Stones photographed in 1963 shortly before their Birmingham debut at the Ritz Ballroom

Come On down to Fletchers Bar on King's Heath's York Road on Sunday 24 September where Satisfaction is guaranteed as  we celebrate the 54th Anniversary of the Rolling Stones first ever performance in Birmingham at the old Ritz Ballroom.

Formed in London in 1962 by Brian Jones after he met up with Mick Jagger and Keith Richards who had been childhood friends, the Rolling Stones started out as a blues group taking their name from the title of a song by Muddy Waters. For the whole of 1962 they played exclusively in the London area. But all that changed on 7 June 1963 after they released their first single a cover of Chuck Berry's "Come On". Just a few months later on 14 September 1963 they played one of their first ever gigs outside London and their first ever in Birmingham at King's Heath's Ritz Ballroom. Joining Brian, Mick and Keith on the tiny stage were Bill Wyman and Charlie Watts. The day after they returned to London to play at the Great Pop Prom at the Royal Albert Hall! And when they returned to Birmingham the following year they played the much larger venues of the Hippodrome and the Town Hall. They then went onto become the world's greatest Rock and Roll Band in the world selling over 200 million albums.

From 3 to 6 pm some great local musicians including Get Stoned, Goodall, Mr Apollo 3, Ant's Cover Up, The Mighty Crawdaddys and Harmonica Bob and Oz will perform their interpretations of classic Rolling Stones songs at Fletchers Bar & Eatery directly opposite the burnt down ruins of the old Ritz Ballroom.

Get your tickets now for this hugely popular annual event that usually sells out in advance.

ADVANCE TICKET SALES HAVE NOW CLOSED

A FEW £5 TICKETS AVAILABLE ON THE DOOR

TICKETS GUARANTEE ADMISSION BUT NOT A SEAT
