Beatles Singalong

One of the most popular community groups at St Peter’s Church is the monthly singalong, that takes place on the first Wednesday of every month in the Hub.  There was therefore no more perfect way to launch our Celebration of Community, and of the 60th anniversary of the day that John met Paul, than with a Beatle-themed singalong!

Led by Norma Townley, with fabulous accompaniment from a local ukulele orchestra, the Church Hall was packed with Wooltonians as well as visitors from around the world who sang along to a selection of Beatles songs.

  

  

And, thanks to the wonder of ‘facebook live’ we had people singing along with us from as far away as Japan and the United States!

  

As you can see, a “splendid time” was had by all!

Beatles Singalong - Wednesday, July 5, 2017

Relive the 60th Anniversary of the Day that John Met Paul at St Peter’s Church, Woolton!

Those of you who attended our anniversary celebrations last July may have noticed Marie Dixson of The Next Time Photography hard at work at all the events.  She took several thousand photos on behalf of St Peter’s and these are now ready for publication!

Over the next few weeks, we’ll be posting the anniversary photos from the anniversary on this website, and reliving all five days of our Celebration of Community!

Photos may be downloaded and shared but please do NOT remove the credit/watermark from the photos.  (Please note that photos have been compressed prior to uploading to the website; full quality, high resolution images are available to purchase on request.)

As a taster of what’s to come, here’s one of our favourite photos of three of our favourite men — Rod Davies, Len Garry and Colin Hanton of the Quarrymen!

 

We thought you might like to know that the Quarrymen are appearing in Liverpool at the Royal Philharmonic Hall on Monday afternoon, 15 Jan, on a special concert in aid of the famous Liverpool charity – The League of Welldoers. The gig starts at 2pm. Also on the bill are Mike Byrne and the Sunrockers plus a load more Merseyside entertainers so one way or another you should be in for a fun afternoon!

Tickets cost £12.00 and can be obtained from the League of Welldoers on 0151 207 1984 or directly from the Philharmonic by clicking HERE!
