INTERNATIONAL BEATLE WEEK TO CELEBRATE ABBEY ROAD ANNIVERSARY & MATHEW STREET FESTIVAL

Julia Baird, John Lennon's sister, is appearing at this year's International Beatle Week



The world's largest and longest-running Beatles festival returns to Liverpool this month - with special guests including John Lennon's sister Julia Baird and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame drummer Alan White.
International Beatleweek 2019 will feature 70 bands from 20 countries and is worth an estimated £2.8m to the city’s economy.
This year marks 50 years since the release of Abbey Road and 60 years since the Casbah Club was opened by Mona Best – mother of The Beatles’ first drummer Pete Best - in West Derby.
Both landmark anniversaries will be celebrated at events between August 21-27, as will the Mathew Street Festival which ran alongside Beatleweek for 20 years until it was cancelled in 2013.
The festival includes the Annual Beatles Convention at the Adelphi Hotel on Sunday, August 25 which features guest speakers, interviews, film shows, a giant Beatles flea market, and performances from 40 tribute bands.
John Lennon’s sister Julia Baird will be appearing at the event as well as Yes drummer Alan White, who played with both Lennon and George Harrison, and recording studio engineer Jack Douglas who worked with Lennon on both Imagine and Double Fantasy.

LOST FOOTAGE OF THE BEATLES IN 1966 TO BE SHOWN IN LIVERPOOL

The Cunard Building venue will showcase what has been hailed as the ‘Holy Grail’ of lost tapes which contains footage of the only ever live appearance of The Beatles on Top of the Pops on 6 June 1966.



The screening has been made possible thanks to a partnership with the Kaleidoscope Archive which specialises in recovering video and TV shows.It was believed only an 11-second, silent clip existed which was discovered in April this year by a collector in Mexico.However, another collector and music enthusiast, David Chandler, contacted Kaleidoscope, and handed over a series of 8mm film reels.




The footage, which includes a 92-second performance by The Beatles playing Paperback Writer, lasts nine minutes in total and also shows Dusty Springfield singing Goin' Back, Tom Jones singing Green, Green Grass of Home, The Hollies performing Bus Stop, and other performances by The Spencer Davis Group, Ike and Tina Turner, and Cliff Richard and the Shadows
