*EXCLUSIVE*

 

In the early 1960's John Elwood from Wigan would often accompany his dad to work. Once inside the workplace John would settle down to watch many dozens of the feature films of the day of which his film projectionist father would show to the cinema audience - providing they were suitable for a ten year old of course.

 

  On some occasions instead of showing a film that same day the auditorium would be transformed into a live theatre for the night. The young John would be there too - watching and listening with transfixed fascination. But, not only did he get see and hear the performer's on stage, he and his dad also went up close and back-stage too. Collecting autographs and saving posters together with signed photographs and souveneir programmes featuring.. 'you know who?'

 

And now John is ready to show his personal treasure trove to the world.

Exclusivly and only on..

THE BEATLES 

Thursday 13th October 1964: Star Scene '64' Tour

 

"The Beatles came to Wigan three months after the release of A Hard Day's Night and three months before the release of Beatles For Sale and played a sell-out performance before hundreds of Wigan fans, including myself, and a small child called Stuart Maconie; who took along his mum.

 

Stuart is about to make a radio programme of this memorable night so, if you were there and you have a story to tell, let me know and I'll pass your infomation on.
