We're buzzing with excitement as we've just wrapped up another epic event at King's Heath. Our annual musical extravaganza, Beatles Fest 2023 that unfolded on July 1st, was a roaring success, and we can't wait to relive the magical moments with all of you.
This year, the festival had an even more special vibe, as we celebrated the 60th Anniversary of The Beatles' King's Heath Gigs. Oh, the nostalgia! Remember when the iconic four-member band took the stage in King's Heath back in 1963? We aimed to revive that unforgettable atmosphere, and judging by your reactions, we succeeded!
Our fest kicked off with the marvellous tribute band, THE LET IT BEATLES. Their special medley of 1963 songs resonated throughout King's Heath, painting the town with the colours of our rich musical heritage. The sweet melodies of the Beatles’ timeless music filled the air, igniting a profound sense of community spirit. We saw faces light up with joy, heard voices singing along in unison, and felt the ground shake with the rhythm of collective foot-tapping.
As if the Saturday event wasn’t enough to satisfy our music-hungry souls, Sunday had its own delightful share of celebrations. Continuing our joyous celebration of the 60th Anniversary of The Beatles King's Heath gigs, the afternoon was brimming with electrifying performances that touched our hearts and set our feet tapping.
A big shout out to all the bands who graced our stage, adding their own unique hues to the vibrant tapestry of our Beatles Fest. From the melodious sounds of Acoustica, the groovy rhythms of Mr Apollo, to the enchanting vocal stylings of Matilda Pratt, the energy was unceasing. Blue Silk, with their haunting melodies, along with the foot-tapping tunes from Abi Budgen & Dan Wilkins, and the eclectic mix of Jack Goodall & The Kick, kept the spirits high and the audience entranced.
