Beatles Live

Beatles live venues in London

Join Richard Porter as he takes you on a virtual Beatles tour of some of the famous, but some lesser known, venues that the Beatles played in their career in London.

  • You know about the London Palladium, but how about the Pigalle Club? The Blue Gardenia?
  • Learn how the Beatles went from playing in front of 18 people on their first trip to the South to playing in front of 10,000 screaming fans on the same bill as the Rolling Stones, the Who and the Yardbirds.
  • Hear how some of the venues for Beatles concerts are now churches, and trampoline parks!

Through photographs, videos and a live commentary, journey with us to London and discover more about Beatles history.


This is a live online tour, and that there will be a Q & A session at the end. It is a great opportunity to meet fans from around the world!
