The story behind the cinema where The Beatles and The Rolling Stones performed

A luxury Nottinghamshire cinema where iconic names such as The Beatles and The Rolling Stones once took to the stage is now where the town’s Primark is located.

The Granada in Mansfield – originally named the Plaza – on West Gate, was a luxury cinema built in 1930 that was also used as a music venue for some of the biggest stars of the early rock and roll scene in the 1950s and 1960s.

Perhaps the most famous gig at the Granada came in 1963 when The Beatles supported singer Helen Shapiro, a year before their American tour earned them global appeal.
