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

Fourmost–A Night For Mike

The Fourmost were a prominent band of the Merseybeat era with their most famous single “Hello Little Girl” being penned by Lennon and McCartney.

Sadly, band member Mike Millward developed leukaemia in the mid-60s and made his final departure from the band in December 1965, passing away a short while afterwards.

A tribute concert was held at the beginning of April 1966 at the Grafton, raising money for Cancer Research  and a Memorial service followed later the same month.

A selection of artefacts from these occasions are for sale in 2013 auction. They include an order of service plus ticket and flyer for the Night For Mike concert.
