1965 – Scotland’s best Bands were invited to take part in this Competition.

24th June 1964
1965 -  Scotland's best Bands were invited to take part in this Competition.

About this memory

Big Beat Competition, sponsored by the Evening News and Dispatch in the Kinema Ballroom, Dunfermline.

This was part of the Dunfermline Civic Week, which included a selection of the “best” Beat Groups in the East of Scotland (see Newspaper Article for the full list).

This was a big event and we were keen to make a good impression so we decided on a mix of numbers and also decided to segway the songs together, in other words no gaps between numbers.
