Home of "The Beatles" - not many people know that!
It is a rather amazing fact that you can sensibly claim that the Beatles were first formed in Skegness !
In 1962, Ringo Starr and his group Rory Storm and the Hurricanes, arrived to play the summer season at Skegness after two successful years at Pwllheli. During that summer John Lennon and Paul McCartney visited the Skegness camp and met with Ringo to discuss future possibilities. This eventually led to a request to join their band, conveyed in a phone call to the camp from Lennon on Tuesday 14th August. Despite having two weeks left on his contract, Ringo gave his group three days notice and on 18th August 1962 sat down behind the drum-kit of the Beatles. On that night the Fab Four were born.
