9 December 1961 - Saturday
The Palais Ballroom
Photographer: Dick Matthews

This is The Beatles' first London show. It's is the infamous show which
was not advertised properly and resulting in only 18 people attending.
The local newspaper, Aldershot News, neglected to feature Sam Leach's
advertisement for the show. But, apparently, the band and friends had
their own fun after the show.

Subsequent shows at this venue were properly advertised and
attendance was very good.
