FANS CAN ENJOY AN EXHIBIT AT THE MARKET GALLERY AND A NUMBER OF BEATLES-THEMED EVENTS THIS SUMMER

The Beatles’ last show in Toronto was on August 16, 1966; 50 years later, the City of Toronto’s Museums & Heritage Services celebrates that era with a new exhibit, When the Beatles Rocked Toronto at The Market Gallery. Learn about this exciting time of social revolution in the city’s history through memorabilia and rare photography from the three occasions the Beatles performed in Toronto, as well as a replica of a typical 1960s rec room, a map of Toronto’s 1960s music scene, and a look at how music was consumed in the ’60s. From August 13 to 21, BEATLES *50* T.O. Week takes over with a number of ‘60s-themed events and exhibits, including a series of historic walks, talks, a men’s fashion show, and two Beatles-themed concerts.  —Karen Stevens
