Rare and Unseen Photos of The Beatles Playing to 18 People in Aldershot, London in December 1961

This is The Beatles' first London show, on 9th December 1961. It's is the infamous show which was not advertised properly and resulting in only 18 people attending. The local newspaper, Aldershot News, neglected to feature Sam Leach's advertisement for the show. But, apparently, the band and friends had their own fun after the show.

Subsequent shows at this venue were properly advertised and attendance was very good.
