The Venues

The Casbah Coffee Club

This is an alphabetical list of the venues they played as the Quarrymen right through to The Beatles. You can then cross-refer it with the area of Merseyside (in brackets) for more information. In the book, you will find out the dates and how many times they played there. From when I started Liddypool in 2000, many of the original venues had been demolished by the time it was published in 2009. Many more have gone since then too.
