1966 ~ Marriage of George and Pattie Boyd, at the Esher Register Office, Surrey.

Brian and Paul are best men.

Evening: Brian throws a party at Chapel Street, in honour of George and Pattie. Guests: Paul, Jane, John, Cynthia, Geoffrey Ellis, Wendy Hanson, George Martin, Judy Martin.

If you're patient and highly observant, you will see Neil, Mal, Tony Barrow and perhaps others in the crowd ~ let me know if you notice anyone else of note, such as Tony Bramwell? Was he there?

Beatles manager Brian Epstein to be honoured with theatre in his name

Tragic Beatles manager Brain Epstein is to be honoured with a theatre named after him in Liverpool.

The city's former Neptune Theatre is to be renamed The Epstein Theatre as a memorial to the entrepreneur catapulted The Fab Four to worldwide fame.

A Liverpool music and record shop owner Epstein became a Merseybeat guru and managed the mop top band until his drugs overdose death on 27th August 1967.

Restoration work in under way on The Epstein Theatre, a 97-year-old Grade II listed building in Hanover St, which has been closed to the public since 2005.

Liverpool Council Leader Joe Anderson said: "Brian Epstein was, to many, the 5th Beatle but he was also a brilliant entrepreneur who put many Liverpool acts on the road to success.

"He arguably did more than anyone to stamp the city so emphatically on the world map, an achievement which today generates millions of pounds for our tourism economy.

"I’m delighted Brian’s family have accepted our request to rename this venue The Epstein Theatre as it gives Liverpool its first real opportunity to officially say thank you to one of our greatest sons for his unique contribution. "

The £750,000 revamp, will see the 400-seat former Edwardian music hall re-fitted to modern safety standards.

It will be resplendent with new mahogany front doors and crystal chandeliers and is scheduled to be opened in February next year.

Epstein also managed 60’s hitmakers Cilla Black and Gerry and The Pacemakers before his death from an drugs overdose aged just 32.


The eppylover's only issue with the article is with their very first five words: "Tragic Beatles manager Brain (sic) Epstein..." Perpetuating the pathetic stereotype and the common misspelling of his name.

But hey, I'm a picky bee-yatch, so, anyway, whatev. YAY. ^.^

And....Notice that Cllr Anderson said "FIRST real opportunity"... to me, that bespeaks of MORE TO COME. Double YAY.

Brian Epstein in A Hard Day's Night?

Some sources, including Wikipedia, say that Brian made an uncredited appearance in A Hard Day's Night. Does anyone know where in the movie this is? I usually consider myself talented at Eppy Spotting (since he's so often in the background or partially cut-off in photos), but I don't see him in AHD.

Liverpool remembers Brian Epstein

FROM: What Goes

Liverpool remembers Brian Epstein
by Katie Hickox

Brian Epstein, the Beatles manager who brought the Beatles out of Liverpool and engineered their success, was remembered yesterday throughout the city of Liverpool on the 40th anniversary of his death, August 27, 1967.

Criteria for receiving a blue plaque on a former residence of an honoured person:

In order to be eligible for an English Heritage blue plaque, a figure must have been dead for twenty years or have passed the centenary of their birth, whichever is the earlier.

Katie feels it's a disgrace that the City of Liverpool has never erected a plaque in front of Brian's childhood home at 197 Queens Drive in the Childwall area of Liverpool, even though at least three have been put up for John Lennon in different sites. Brian truly deserves, for once, to be honoured ahead of a Beatle or two.

Martin Lewis feels it's a disgrace that so many other, almost anonymous non-performers have been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame (See my old post on that travesty), and Brian has been cluelessly omitted.

Christine agrees with all of the above, and also feels it's a disgrace that Brian has never been posthumously knighted ~ well, at least received a posthumous MBE. He more than deserved one when his Boys received theirs!

How many more times can I say the word disgrace?

Can you think of any other ways Brian Epstein can be remembered and assured his place in history as an equal alongside The Beatles? Thank you!
