Bradford Live are releasing a series of Podcasts as part of a programme of heritage activity funded by the National Lottery Heritage Fund which will share the history and redevelopment of one of Bradford’s most loved buildings with the people of the city.

In the second of the series of podcasts, we look back at the 3rd Beatles visit to the Gaumont on the 9th October 1964. In this extract, local historian Mark Nicholson tells us about when the legendary Beatles came to The Gaumont in 1964 - from fainting fans to the lucky locals who got to meet the band and the hysteria that came with having The Beatles in Bradford.
