The Stowe tuckshop girls


The Beatles at Stowe is the gift that keeps on giving in 2023!   Much of it is thanks to Samira Ahmed, my favorite new Beatles historian.   She has done a report on the two girls that met the Beatles and had a meal with them at the tuckshop, and I can't wait to hear it!    She shared the color photo and the autographs on Twitter along with this information:

"It wasn’t us screaming,” They think it might have been some of the boys. The wonderful Stowe tuckshop girls Maggie & Jan. Not enough places so had to take turns to sit at the table. With their scrapbook &a copy of their father’s tape made over dinner with the Beatles

Now I can't wait to learn more about these fans, Maggie and Jan! They took turns sitting at the table with The Beatles, but it looks like they got a seat next to Paul to share. And those autographs are great! This is the stuff I live for, you know?


  1. Tuckshop - NOT Truckshop!! A shop, esp one in or near a school, where food such as cakes and sweets are sold.

    1. oops -- autocorrect kept trying to change it to "truckstop" and I kept trying to change it back. But autocorrect one part way. Although I have to say that I have never heard of a tuckstop before this story. Something we don't have in the United States.
