Home of the Quarrymen

“I was immediately struck by their music, their beat and their humour on stage…”

Brian Epstein

10 Matthew Street, Liverpool was a modest underground jazz club. Roughly converted from a WW2 air raid shelter, it was named after the Paris Venue, Le Caveau. The Quarrymen first played there in February 1957. Between 1961-63 The Beatles performed there 292 times. In the mid 1970s it was demolished as part of the construction of an underground carpark. In 1984, it was rebuilt on 75% of the original site with 15,000 of the original bricks. It is still an amazing space to hear live music -nearly always a Beatles cover act. #yeahyeahyeah #letsmakelemonade
