IN JUST over a weeks time The Mersey Beatles will hit the stage at Port Sunlight's Hulme Hall.

Heading to the famous venue on October 31, the Liverpool-born tribute band will be following in the Fab Four's footsteps as part of their 17-date UK tour.

The Beatles had played Hulme Hall four time, the most famous performance being Ringo Starr's debut as the band's new drummer on August 18, 1962.

Now The Mersey Beatles are gearing up to perform a two-hour set, charting the band's full career through hit tracks such as Love Me Do and Let It Be.

Julia Baird, who first saw older brother John Lennon and his band perform for her in her kitchen at home in the 1950s and is a director of Liverpool’s world famous Cavern Club, said: “It’s going to be a brilliant show in Port Sunlight.

“The Mersey Beatles are a fantastic band who nail the sound of The Beatles. I’ve known them for the best part of 20 years and they recreate The Beatles atmosphere wonderfully.

“The audience will have a great time and I’m sure the good people of Wirral will not be constrained by their seats on the night as The Mersey Beatles have that brilliant ability to get people up on their feet dancing.

"John would have loved that!”

Formed in 1999 in Liverpool by four school friends, The Mersey Beatles have toured the world many times over.

The band – Mark Bloor (John), Steven Howard (Paul), Craig McGown (George) and Brian Ambrose (Ringo) cannot wait to hit the road in 2018.

Mark added: “We pride ourselves on bringing a true Beatles experience, covering all the eras from the days of The Cavern Club, through Beatlemania to Sgt Pepper and the band’s final gig on the rooftop of the Apple offices.

"We cannot wait to Get Back to where it all began for the greatest band of all time.”
