YOU’RE My World - a celebration of Cilla Black and The Beatles - is coming to Settle Victoria Hall next month.

And, it will be a chance to sing along to the hits of the sixties, including Love of The Loved, I Want to Hold Your Hand, Anyone Who Had a Heart, All My Loving, Twist and Shout, plus many more.

For the first half of the show, the audience will be transported back more than 50 years to the world famous Cavern Club in Liverpool, where The Beatles made their first appearance in 1961, followed by a further 292 in the next two years.

In the decade that followed, a wide variety of popular acts appeared at the club, including future star Priscilla White, who worked as the hat-check girl, and who was to become Cilla Black.

In the show, the Fab Four invite ‘swinging Cilla’ from the cloakroom onto the stage and her impromptu performances, not just with The Beatles, but with many other Merseybeat groups impressed both the audiences and The Beatles manager, Brian Epstein.

Cilla became a guest singer with Rory Storm and The Hurricanes, Kingsize Taylor and The Dominoes, and later with The Big Three. When singing with The Hurricanes, Cilla used to share vocals with their then drummer Ringo Starr on the song “Boys”.

It is believed after seeing Cilla perform at the Blue Angel Club, Epstein contracted Cilla Black (the music paper “Mersey Beat” misprinted her surname as Black, a name she favoured and happily kept), and Cilla became Epstein’s only female client in September 1963.

For the second half of the show, the time moves on to Saturday night at the London Palladium and the small, sweaty clubs of Liverpool are a distant memory. The leather gear is out and posh tailored suits are in, and ‘The Fabs’ are now world famous, appearing on the the Ed Sullivan Show on American television.

Cilla’s hair is now styled by hairdresser to the stars, Vidal Sassoon and her dresses are designed by Mary Quant.

The song ‘Anyone Who Had a Heart’, suggested to Cilla by Brian Epstein, was written by Burt Bacharach and Hal David, and was a huge hit for Dionne Warwick.

Cilla’s knockout rendition was recorded in January 1964 and went on to become her first number one, and is still to this day the biggest selling single of all time by a British female recording artist.

The perfect follow-up “You’re My World” went to become Cilla’s second number one single and broke Cilla into the tough US market, gaining her world-wide recognition.

The audience is promised a fun packed show which celebrates the Brit-pop music scene of the 1960s. You’re My World at Settle Victoria Hall is on Saturday, June 1 at 8pm. Tickets £16.50 online at:, or call the box office on 01729 825718.
