This week it's fifty years since The Beatles toured our region.

The pictures below shows just some of the many people who queued to see the Fab Four perform in Ipswich.

Tonight it's exactly half a century since they played The Granada Theatre in Bedford- not as the headline act but supporting the then far more popular 16 year old sensation Helen Shapiro.

They went on to tour Peterborough, Cambridge, Northampton, Luton, Norwich, Ipswich, Southend, and Great Yarmouth.

ITV News Anglia will have a special report on the 50th anniversary tonight at 6pm.
