Global Beatles Day – An Annual Celebration of The Beatles

Global Beatles Day celebrating the musical talent of four Liverpool lads - Karnival Costumes online party shop Blog

In the early sixties and almost hidden away in a small music club in Liverpool music history changed forever. Four young lads came together to form what would be one of the most influential rock bands the world has ever heard. Written large in the annals of history, the names of the four lads are legend. Paul McCartney, George Harrison, John Lennon, and Ringo Starr or as they are still collectively known to this day, The Beatles ruled the music world and given their achievements it’s right and proper that we celebrate them with an annual event every June.
