Love Me Do Weekend, Liverpool October 5th-7th


On October 5th 2012 the people of Liverpool smashed a Guinness World Record and in doing so celebrated the 50th anniversary of the release of the Beatles debut single ‘Love Me Do’ in unique style.

Instigated by the city’s award-winning Beatles Story attraction with the support of Liverpool City and the Albert Dock, 1631 people sang their hearts out on a cold October morning smashing the previous record set by a group in Chicago, USA in October 2011.

Their backdrop? The city’s iconic Liver Building of course.

The record - the most people singing ‘in a round’ - previous stood at 897. ‘A round’ is where two groups sing exactly the same melody with each group beginning at different times so that different parts of the melody coincide in the different voices.
