Liverpool Celebrates Beatles Day

Starting this year, Liverpool will celebrate July 10 as Beatles Day. The day marks the 44th anniversary of the band’s triumphant return home after their first American tour.
Event promoter Chas Cole explains:
“Liverpool has always been proud of The Beatles and it’s a wonderful idea to combine an annual celebration of their music with a fund-raising drive for charity.
“Beatles Day will really be about the ordinary people of this city, and hopefully in the future, cities in the UK and beyond because we want this idea to catch on, from Liverpool to London to Los Angeles.” - Chas Cole
Celebrations include (surprise surprise) lots of tribute concerts. Beatles-style mop-top wigs are on sale everywhere, with proceeds going to charities including Alder Hey Imagine Appeal and Liverpool Unites.
