Rare 1962 Beatles Concert Handbill

Original 1960s handbills are very rare items of memorabilia, because they were throw-away things, often binned right away or shortly after the event they advertised.

This handbill is from July 1962. It is for a concert on 30th, and the Beatles had only signed for EMI/Parlophone at the start of that month.



The Beatles played at the venue five times in 1962, and this handbill is for the last of those dates.

Pete Best would have still been with the band, as Ringo did not join till the August.

And of course, although freshly signed to EMI, the band wouldn't have a single out till the October.

This rare piece of Beatle history is estimated at £1700-£1800
