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

Celebrate Community with The Shakers!

From 7.30pm to 11pm on Friday July 7, St Peter’s Church Hall will echo once again to Merseybeat as we host a party that celebrates the importance and magic of community, as well as the 60th anniversary of the day that John met Paul!

And YOU are invited!

Join the people of Woolton village as we gather to celebrate the legacy of that famous meeting and its importance to us today.  We’ll travel back to the 1950s and early 1960s as we dance to two sets of fabulous live music from The Shakers — Liverpool’s premier beat merchants and Cavern Club resident Merseybeat band!

Tickets for our Community Celebration cost £15 and can be bought from the Beatles Shop, 31 Mathew Street (cash sales only) or by contacting us at beatlesatstpeters@gmail.com

Places are strictly limited, though!  So get your tickets soon to ensure that you don’t miss out on this chance to dance to the fabulous music of the late 1950s and early 1960s, and relive those special days that witnessed the birth of the Beatles and the glorious heyday of Merseybeat!

A free buffet will be provided but please note that no drinks are included.   Soft drinks will be available to buy on the night, but, due to licensing restrictions, alcohol cannot be sold.   You are welcome to bring your own drinks of any kind, though!

We hope you can join us as we gather to celebrate 60 years of local community in St Peter’s Church Hall!  Get your tickets now!

Mersey Harmony Singers Join the Celebration!

We are absolutely thrilled to announce that the Mersey Harmony Singers will be joining the celebrations and performing in St Peter’s Church Hall on Friday July 7 at 2pm!

Mersey Harmony are an all- female a capella chorus who sing in barbershop close four part harmony.  They were formed in 1976 and attract singers of all ages and from all walks of life, but who share a common love of singing.  They were founding members of the Ladies Association of British Barbershop Singers, and have been competing nationally and internationally for the past 40 years.

We are both excited and privileged that they will be performing in the Church Hall as part of our celebration of the day that John met Paul and the importance of community.  Entry to the concert is FREE, so please join us for what promises to be a very special afternoon of music from a local community group!

In the meantime, check out this fabulous youtube link of the Mersey Harmony ladies singing at the LABBS Convention last year!
