was my first ever Beatle Week in Liverpool,
and I had a ball. Thank you for
organising such a great event. The
highlights for me include:
Fab Faux's 'I Am The Walrus' and 'Tomorrow
Never Knows' and 'O Darling' - what a band!
1964 singing 'This Boy' in the Royal Court
Jan Owen singing 'A Day In The Life' (on one
guitar) at 2am in the Adelphi.
The Mersey Beatles playing a screaming set
at 4am on Tuesday morning...
All pure magic. Thanks!
On a side issue, I wonder if it is possible
for you to put some temporary wheelchair
ramps into the Adelphi next year. My
friend, Mark Welch, is in a wheelchair, and
he goes to the festival every year.
I'm sure you know him. The Irish guy.
Well everyone was very helpful towards him,
and Mark does not like to make a fuss; but
there were times when his life would have
been made a lot easier if there were ramps
available in the Adelphi. It's just a thought.
Anyway, thanks again, and hope to see you in

must have been my 8th or 9th year to Beatle
Week and as usual I wasn't disappointed.
band I saw played their hearts out and
everyone - band and audiences alike enjoyed
every minute. There is always so much
going on that you sometimes give us a tough
choice on which band to go and see next !
top band of 2016 had to be The Repeatles -
what a band - such energy and talent I would
loved to have seen more of them. I hope you
give them a bigger stage next year..
But they are just one of so many varied acts
that we got the opportunity to enjoy.
From the classic "Boots &
Suits" of the Mersey Beatles, the
Psychedelic show case by The Fab Faux, the
young and upcoming talent of The Beat
Brothers (real talents of the future there)
to the off beat Jazz style of Mad Dogs.
So many different variation on the music
that we all come together every year to
Heres to next year!!

My husband and
myself attended Beatle Week for the first
time this year and had an amazing time. we
knew it would be good but it was much much
better than we ever expected. We are both
big Elvis fans and have attended 1950's rock
n roll and Elvis gigs and festivals for
many years but we wanted to do something
"Beatles" as we have both started
to really appreciate their music over the
last couple of years. We may have stood out
a bit as "rockabillies" but we
felt as though we fitted right in. Just one
thing though, Liverpool seems to have
forgotten Billy Fury and that is a real
shame. How about one of the Billy Fury
tribute bands next year??! We loved the Fab
Four (having already seem them in Vegas last
year) and 1964 too. We will definitely be
back next year and will try and catch more
bands then. We saw as many as we could
but it would be impossible to see them all.
One other thing, can entrance to the Cavern
pub/club be more definite as we couldn't get
in a couple of times even though we had gold
wristbands. See you all next year.

Sorry I don't have any photos, I'm not a
photo type person. I just wanted to say how
much I enjoyed BW2016 and a special mention
for the Prellies, they were rocking great as
usual. Always go to see the Prellies when I
can, and I'll see them again soon at the Grosvenor
Ballroom in Liskard later this month, just
can't get enough of then. Take care and keep
the Prellies rocking into BW2005,
