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

Iron Door Membership Dated for the Day The Silver Beatles Auditioned At The Venue

This lovely membership card for the Iron Door is dated 15th May 1960 which happened to the day a band called The Silver Beetles (formerly Johnny and The Moondogs and later, obviously, The Beatles) auditioned there. They were approached with offers of potential further bookings but they were off on tour in Scotland with Johnny Gentle a few days later so declined till later dates.) 

The estimate on this item is £200-£250 and it will up for sale in our Annual Liverpool Beatles Auction later this month.


The 2016 Liverpool Beatles Memorabilia Auction takes place on 27th August 2016 at the Paul McCartney Auditorium at The Liverpool Institute for the Performing Arts. . All valuations are free.
