Imagine...The Beatles.


One of the UK’s leading tribute acts, Imagine...the Beatles, will transport you to the Cavern Club in the 1960s when Geoff Raggett, Rob Simpson, Adj Buffona and Steve Townsend transform themselves into John, Paul, George and Ringo on Saturday night.

The group, together for 10 years, will perform around 35 songs. Founder Rob said: “We are all from south London and Kent who first met when I saw Steve performing with another band and I decided we should set up a tribute act.

“I take on the role of Paul, who has the same birthday as me, which is great.”

The group have travelled around the world and performed as far away as Thailand.

Rob added: “People seem to love the show and we hope they go home saying they have had a good night out.

“We get visitors bringing their young child along who already knows the words to songs such as She Loves You which is just crazy.”

The show is at Ilford Sports Club, Cricklefield Place, Ilford at 7pm. To buy tickets visit or call 07908 070 174.
