The Beatles performed the “Beatles Farewell Show” at Aintree Institute in Aintree, Liverpool with the Night Boppers, Ray and the Del Renas, the Cliff Roberts Rockers and the Ravens. Then they performed at the Liverpool Jazz Society in Liverpool with Gerry and the Pacemakers, the Remo Four, Rory Storm and the Hurricanes, the Big Three, Dale Roberts and the Jaywalkers, Derry and the Seniors, Ray and the Del Renas, the Pressman, Johnny Rocco and the Jets, and Faron and the Tempest Tornadoes.
“The LJS engagement was a true innovation on the part of Sam Leach, certainly the most adventurous and ambitious rock dance promoter in the Merseyside area: a 12-group, 12-hour, all-night session, commencing at 8.00 Saturday night and finishing at 8.00 Sunday morning…..Although the attendance capacity of the Temple Street cellar was 1000, approximately 2000 people saw at least some part of the show. Leach was to hold similar marathon “Big Beat Sessions” over the next two years at several different venues, most (although not all) of which featured the Beatles as the main attraction.” The Complete Beatles Chronicle, Mark Lewisohn, page 411963:

Filming: A Hard Day's Night
This was The Beatles' first day in Twickenham Film Studios, where they would later shoot Help!, Let It Be and a number of promotional videos and solo projects. On this day The Beatles worked from 8am to 10pm, filming the I Should Have Known Better sequence. A set was built to resemble a train guard's van, which was rocked while The Beatles mimed to the song. At one point, however, director Richard Lester had to stop the shoot because the technicians were rocking the set in time with the song.I Should Have Known Better (High Quality)
