Half a century after the Beatles topped the charts with Yellow Submarine, the cast of a Dartford-bound Fab Four musical were at the docks in Kent customising their own underwater craft.

Having been a hit in the West End, Let It Be is on tour and is the biggest ever Beatles celebration show. It comes to the Orchard Theatre from June 27 to July 2 but before then the actors playing John, Paul, George and Ringo pulled on their Sergeant Pepper outfits and grabbed their paint brushes.

Paul Canning (John Lennon), Iain Hornal (Paul McCartney), John Brosnan (George Harrison) and Luke Roberts (Ringo Starr) headed down to Chatham Historic Dockyard and gave a yellow hue to its model of a Russian Victor class submarine, which was built for the 1999 James Bond film, The World Is Not Enough.

Let It Be has been seen by nearly two million people worldwide and features more than 40 of the band’s greatest hits, including She Loves You, Yesterday, Hey Jude, Come Together, Help!, All You Need is Love, Penny Lane and Let it Be.
