Get your Beatle and Mersey Beat memorabilia evaluated during free Liverpool event

BEATLE fans are being urged to bring along their memorabilia for a free evaluation by experts at  The Beatles Story, Albert Dock.

Collectors of Mersey Beat memorabilia will also have the opportunity to get their cool items appraised for free by experts at Julien's Auctions on Wednesday, October 25.

Not so long ago a similar event valued Quarrymen member Rod Davis’ banjo at around £10,000.

Internationally renowned Julien’s Auctions has broken world records with the sale of Beatles memorabilia including John Lennon’s acoustic guitar which sold for a record $2.4 million and Ringo Starr’s Ludwig drum kit which sold for a record $2.2 million.

At last year’s Liverpool event, a letter written by John Lennon addressed to The Queen was uncovered which explained the singer’s reasons for returning his MBE. 

John’s signature was verified as authentic on the day and the item valued by Julien’s Auctions at around £60,000.

The owner, who wishes to remain anonymous, discovered the letter tucked away inside the sleeve of a record that was part of a collection of 45s he picked up for £10 at a car boot sale 20 years ago, and had presumed it must have been a copy. 

The item is currently on loan to The Beatles Story and is displayed within the solo area of the main exhibition.

Martin King of The Beatles Story said: “Our two previous events have been a huge success, but we are sure that there are many more fascinating artefacts still waiting to be discovered. 

"We would like to encourage the public to search their attics to unearth those hidden gems and bring them along to this Memorabilia Day. 

"It is a fantastic opportunity for people to have their items valued by some of the world’s most well respected experts in celebrity memorabilia.”

‘Memorabilia Day’ will take place in The Beatles Story’s Fab4 Cafe at the Albert Dock on Wednesday October 25 from 12pm until 8pm.
