Princes of Wales

July 14, 1962

The Beatles make their first appearance in Wales, which is just across the River Dee from Liverpool City.  Of course, all of the Beatles have spent time in Wales, especially at Butlins Holiday Camp (Pwllheli location), where they'd vacation as kids, but this is their first trip there as professionals.  They appear at a dance in Rhyl, Flintshire, about an hour away from home.  I'm sure they are wondering and worrying, "How do we ease Pete out and Ringo in?".

Pwllheli is to the south on Cardigan Bay (zoom out to see it).

  1. I always wondered what a Butlins camp was like. Seems like it was the working class thing to do for a holiday.
