A Weston-super-Mare poet and author has immortalised the moment the world’s most famous band visited Birnbeck Pier.
Anthony Keyes has penned a poem on The Beatles’ 1963 visit to the town after performing at the Odeon, which saw the legendary Liverpudlians pictured on a rock overlooking the pier by GD Smith. The poem has been etched on a plaque which this week was installed at ‘Beatles Rock’.
Mr Keyes said: “The poem is an experience not a plaque to say the Beatles visited in 1963, although reference is made to that point in time. “Birnbeck is a place where culture meets the sea; heritage and regeneration go hand in hand.”
