On this day in 1963 The Beatles topped the bill at The Royal Variety Show at The Prince Of Wales Theatre, London. The Queen Mother and Princess Margaret were in the audience. The event was made famous by John Lennon with his famous remark “In the cheaper seats you clap your hands. The rest of you, just rattle your jewellery”.
The rest of us plebs watched the show when it was broadcast on UK television on the Nov 10th 1963.
