Farewell to Aintree

January, 27, 1962

The Beatles play their last show at the Aintree Institute, a mainstay venue of their development so far.  And their last for Brian Kelly, a promoter who got them some of their most important gigs in the 1961.  Brian Epstein is infuriated when promoter Kelly pays the band their £15 fee in loose change, straight from the cash box.  No doubt that is the way it is done at the jive clubs, but it doesn't sit well with the new management, who is trying to create a new image of a professional outfit  Epstein will make sure there are no more appearances for Kelly.
