The Beatles visit Hambro House (March, 1964)

The Beatles

Children from a home run by us met The Beatles at the Scala theatre in London in 1964 when they were filming A Hard Day’s Night. 

The images were featured on the front cover and inside story of our supporter magazine Gateway. The article said the children from Hambro House in Roehampton (which closed in 1975) were delighted to meet the Fab Four. Beatlemania was at its height when John, Paul, George and Ringo joined in the fun, helping them make special mop-topped Easter eggs. 

Gateway described how the children loved getting ‘with it’ with The Beatles, and how this was ‘something many of the more fortunate children in this country would give their front teeth to do.’
