Beatles HIstory: The Beatles Play Locarno Ballroom in Liverpool

An almost obscure fact is that the Beatles performed at a Valentines Dance in Liverpool on February 14, 1963. The dance was held at the Locarno Ballroom on West Derby Road in Liverpool. Until their rise to stardom in Europe, the Beatles frequently played “The Loc,” as it was known, as well as the Grafton Ballroom next door. It is amazing that the group was still performing at local dances exactly one year before they would gain the hearts and ears of American teens after their American television debut.
