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
