In 1960, John Lennon and Paul McCartney performed as a duo called 'The Nerk Twins' in Paul's cousin Bett's pub, The Fox And Hounds, Caversham, Reading. They'd been hitch-hiking back from The Isle Of Wight (hence 'Ticket To Ride') and were working behind the bar.
Later in the 60s, most of The Beatles' repertoire was written by John & Paul while they lived in Surrey - they weren't really a Liverpool band after they signed to Parlophone.
Rather fittingly, more than half a century on, Let It Beatle! are playing a pubs in Reading - The Jolly Anglers, to raise funds for The Samaritans, on 9th July.
