In pictures: The Beatles in Bournemouth

Mr Churchill said the exhibition aimed to provide a "snapshot of the era". Chrissie Gill (centre) was 14-year-old Christine Banham when this photo of her was taken with her friends 16-year-old Marion Turner and her sister 13-year-old Tania. "Marion and Tania persuaded their baker father to make this cake for The Beatles ahead of their show at the Winter Gardens on 16th November 1963," Mr Churchill said.

"Most of the photographs were taken by the late Harry Taylor who worked as a photographer at the Bournemouth Times," Mr Churchill said. "They were used to accompany articles and reviews 50 years or so ago, and haven't been seen since, so they're quite rare."

John Lennon was a regular visitor to Dorset until he left the UK in 1971, according to Mr Churchill. "He bought his aunt Mimi a bungalow called Harbour's Edge close to the ferry port at Sandbanks in 1965," he said. "She lived there until her death in 1991."
