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

Ringo and Paul signed items for Charity.

We have two very lovely signed items going into this year's auction with their proceeds going to worthy causes.

First of all this cool, white, star-shaped tambourine was signed by Ringo Starr in 2002. He signed with his first name and a star motif along with the year "02".

The vendor is donating any proceeds from the sale of this tambourine to The British Heart Foundation.
It carries an estimate of £200-£250.

Also being sold for charity is a unique scrapbook documented Paul McCartney's appearance at WH Smiths in Liverpool to sign copies of his poetry book Blackbird Singing. The signing took place on March 21st 2001.
The scrapbook contains newspaper cuttings and photographs from the time  as well as letters and faxes from customers before and after the event. 

Paul has signed one of the pages saying "Thanks" and added a large smiling face cartoon. 
The proceeds from the sale of this one off item will go to a local Liverpool charity (still to be decided upon) and it carries an estimate of £500-£600.
