Gathering memories of Rolling Stones city gig

First published in Letters

It’s 50 years since the Rolling Stones played a show at Oxford’s Town Hall as part of their rise to become perhaps Britain’s most well known group after The Beatles and certainly its most long lasting.

I’m compiling a people's history of the Stones and if any of your readers were at the show back in 1963 and would like to share their memories – who they went with, what they remember of the gig, whether they enjoyed it – I’d love to hear from them either by email or post.
