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

In The Hand of Bob

For the grand reopening of the Cavern Club in July 1966 the legendary club DJ Bob Wooler was called upon to write a little something about the club for the official programme of the event.

These two handwritten A4 sheets contain the results of that request.

It was edited a little before it was printed in the programme. These small slice of Cavern history is being sold (along with a copy of the Cavern Reopening Programme) in the 2012 Liverpool Beatles Auction. The estimate for this lot is £700-£800.
