On this day, Paul McCartney attended a party thrown by singer Georgie Fame at the Cromwellian Club. Among the other guests were John Lennon, Ringo Starr, Brian Epstein and Jane Asher.

Ringo the Arab, John Lennon the Priest, Paul McCartney a Confederate General and Brian Epstein the Clown, were among the many strangely garbed celebrities at the Coming of Age party for Georgie Fame’s fiancée Carmen Jiminez, held at London’s Cromwellian Club on Sunday. All the guests wore fancy dress, and rivalling the Beatles were Jane Asher as an angel, Georgie Fame as a Regency Buck and Zoot Money as a tramp. Rik Gunnell went as Rudolph Nureyev and danced with publicist Jim Ramble – who was in drag!
