a big day for the Beatles, since they have the opportunity to back Davy

to play their own set.
On December 9th, The Beatles have their first live performance in the south of England (Aldershot, Hampshire) and in London. But due to a failure in the advertisement, there are only 18 customers at the Aldershot's Palais Ballroom, and so the show is a complete flop.
On December 10th, The Beatles agree to take Epstein as a manager for their future bookings. Epstein is quickly successful in pushing Decca Records to dispatch someone to witness a full Beatles' performance.
The Decca representative attend the Beatles show at the Cavern Club on December 13th. He likes what he sees and this is sufficient for him to grant The Beatles an audition in a recording studio. The date of audition is set for January 1st, 1962 !
