Acclaimed Beatles theatre show coming to Worcester

Worcester Editorial 22nd Mar, 2024   0

GET a ‘Ticket To Ride’ on a trip back to ‘Yesterday’ to watch the acclaimed theatre show ‘The Songs The Beatles Gave Away’ at Worcester’s Huntingdon Hall next month.

The show, which will be held at 7.30pm on Friday, April 5, will feature the former custodian of John Lennon’s childhood home, Colin Hall, and BBC Radio 2 broadcaster Bob Harris.

The duo will spend the evening chatting about songs which Sir Paul McCartney, John Lennon and George Harrison penned for other artists.

Hits include Cilla Black’s top ten hit Step Inside Love, Peter and Gordon’s transatlantic chart-topper A World Without Love and Jackie Lomax’s debut single Sour Milk Sea.

And the show will also discuss the last Beatles song, Now and Then, which featured previously unreleased vocals from John Lennon, who died in 1980, as well as overdubs and guitar tracks from George Harrison, who passed away in 2001.

The show is inspired by the BBC Radio 2 documentary hosted by Bob and Colin’s book of the same name.




Colin has interviewed Sir Paul and was a custodian of John Lennon’s childhood home in Liverpool for nearly 20 years, welcoming the likes of Mark Hamill, Debbie Harry and Yoko Ono.

Colin said: “First and foremost I hope people will enjoy their evening with us and hopefully discover something new about The Beatles.


“Our remit is to delve into an often overlooked aspect of the story of the Fab Four.

“Bob and I not only trade stories people may not have heard before but along the way we call upon eye-witnesses such as Sir Paul himself, Sir George Martin, Cilla Black and George Harrison together with clips from the songs themselves.”
