Beatles Auction 2020 - Original Handbill for The Beatles Concert in Southport 1963

This handbill was to advertise a week-long series of concerts at the Odeon Theatre Southport on Saturday, August 31st 1963 featuring The Beatles and Gerry and the Pacemakers. Handbills are rare items of concert paraphernalia as they were thrown away almost immediately a ticket was booked. After all, it wasn't needed anymore. The very throwaway nature of these items make them sought after items among collectors. 

The estimate on this handbill is £700-£900 

The 2020 Beatles Auction is going to be a little bit different. The event will be taking place online. Full details of the auction site will be posted nearer the event.

If you have any items you would like to be considered for placement in the auction please email us at with the details and photographs.

Please note, the Beatles Shop is not currently open to the public so please do not contact us by telephone and do not send items to us on spec.
