It's fifty years this week that The Beatles toured the Anglia region. The Fab Four played the Granada Theatre in Bedford half a century ago on March 12th 1963 not as the headline act but supporting the then far more popular sixteen-year-old sensation Helen Shapiro.
They went on to tour Peterborough, Cambridge, Northampton, Luton, Norwich, Ipswich, Southend, and Great Yarmouth.
