Did you know that John Lennon and Paul McCartney appeared at the Fox & Hounds in Caversham as the Nerk Twins way back in 1960 (52 years ago)?

Saturday 23 April 1960 saw the first of two dates by John Lennon and Paul McCartney, performing as the Nerk Twins at the Fox and Hounds pub in Caversham, Berkshire.

The pub was owned by McCartney's cousin Bett Robbins and her husband Mike, who had previously worked as Butlins Redcoats.

Lennon and McCartney visited them for a week during the Easter holidays, worked behind the bar and performed twice over the weekend.
