Beat City
25th October 1963

Taken from the Manchester Independent newspaper, written and edited by University of Manchester students.

This all-night jazz rave happened at Beat City in October of 1963, but I'm unsure of the exact date. (I've chosen the final Friday in Oct of that year - 25th.)

With thanks to James Peters at the University of Manchester Archives and Ben Ward at University of Manchester Students' Union.
