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

Rare Fan Club Advertising Poster

I don't really know what to write about this item. I don't think we've ever sold anything like this before.

Back in the days before the official Beatles Fan Club was formed three girls from St Helens started one up and they would take this notice with them to any gigs to advertise it. This included trips to the Cavern Club and other local concerts.

Details of how the fan club came in to being (including Bob Wooler's part in the tale) and comments from the girls can be found in Mark Lewisohn's book Tune In on pages 489 -491.

It's never easy to place a value on something that is so obviously a one-off item, but the current estimate on this notice is £250-£300. It will be sold in our Annual Liverpool Beatles Memorabilia auction in August and will be a great addition to someone's collection.


The 2014 Liverpool Beatles Memorabilia Auction takes place on 23rd August 2014 at the Paul McCartney Auditorium at The Liverpool Institute for the Performing Arts. Items are being taken in for this year's event at The Beatles Shop on Mathew Street.
