Please note - The Beatles Shop will be closed from Sunday 26th February while we have important repairs done to the premises. The work is expected to take around 10 days. During this time there will be no one available to take phone calls and we will have no access to emails. No staff will be available for valuations. We apologise for any inconvenience. Hopefully we will be sorted, tidied and everything back in place by the 10th March, but please try ringing us first around that time just to make sure we are open. Thank you

Stuart Sutcliffe Letter and Drawings.

Stuart Sutcliffe has always been an enigmatic character in the story of the Beatles. His good looks and artistic talents combined to make his early death seem so much more of a tragedy.

In our auction this year we have two pieces of personal Stuart memorabilia.

The first is a multiple page letter from Stuart, sent to his friend Sheila. It was sent from his address on Percy Street in Liverpool in October 1959. In the letter he talks about his parents and states that nothing very exciting seems to happen before outlining a fight that had broken out at a party he had attended.

The letter carries an estimate of £1200-£1500

Also for sale in the auction is a page from a sketch book featuring an original drawing by Stuart on each side. These drawings date from his time at Liverpool Art College (which was next door to the Liverpool Institute, which is now LIPA, where the auction will take place.)

This lot carries an estimate of £600-£800
