The Mersey Beatles were the main attraction at Dovedale Community Centre in Liverpool's Penny Lane on Wednesday afternoon to celebrate Sir Paul McCartney's 70th Birthday last Monday.
The band played for over one and a half hours starting their set with Birthday and then Penny Lane. The crowd of young and elderly alike were entertained to hits of the Beatles such as Here comes the Sun, Lady Madonna, I Want To Hold Your Hand, All my loving, Can't buy me Love and finishing off with the songs Twist and Shout, All You Need is Love and a Finale of Hey Jude when the audience sang along.
There were many Beatles fans there and even a visit from a Local Beatles tour with a coach load of fans from all over the world. The event was organised by Volunteer Julie Cornell of Dovedale Community Centre in aid of Charity. This writer enjoyed the performance by the Mersey Beatles with feeling of nostalgia for those days when the Beatles were together and would certainly go and see them again.
