Beatlemania will rock Halifax as celebrations for the 50th anniversary of the 1964 tour begins with a themed afternoon tea at Holdsworth House - the hotel the band stayed at after during their tour.

The Charity Dreamgirls, a charity that raise awareness and funds for lesser known charities, are holding a Beatles-themed afternoon tea with live music, VIP treatment and a bit of music history in the surroundings of the historic hotel on October 21.

The event, that will run from 2pm to 6pm, gives die hard fans a chance to visit the rooms where the band stayed and even take a selfie on the bed that Paul McCartney stayed on.

Savory and sweet food will be available as well as hot beverages, which can be complimented with full bar services and cocktails.

Charity Dreamgirls is supporting shelter charities for the next 12 months and there will be auctions and raffles on the day to raise funds. Tickets are available at www.eventbrite.co.uk. Admission is £25 and includes a goody bag.
