Weston Special Edition Newspaper
A special edition of the newspaper Weston Mercury celebrating The Beatles’ visit to Weston in 1963 is now on sale, with exclusive photos and stories of the Fab Four. So if you’re near Weston…the special is still on sale until tomorrow (Weds).
One incident which occurred during the Beatles’ stay at Weston-Super-Mare was the murder of 16-year-old Liverpudlian Barbara Herron at Wolvershill near Banwell. The Beatles actually visited the murdered girl’s friend Joan McNulty in hospital, according to a local eyewitness, Ian McEachran.
Does anyone know the names of the four donkeys the Beatles rode on the beach in Weston and who rode which animal?
Hmmmm…surely one for new cards in the Beatles Trivial Pursuit game 😉
