“It Was 50 Years Ago Today”

The Philharmonic Concerts Group enjoyed a special occasion on 31st May this year, marking 50 years since The Beatles’ “Sergeant Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band” revolutionised popular music. The Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra teamed up with the well known Bootleg Beatles to recreate all the tracks on the famous album, plus a few more for good measure.
