MEMORABILIA DAY: COMING BACK TO LIVERPOOL

By Posted on 0 0

Memorabilia Day returns to Liverpool on 25 October 2017, 12pm – 9pm. The perfect opportunity to get your Beatles items valued by the experts.

Memorabilia Day returns to Liverpool on 25 October 2017, giving members of the public, fans and collectors the opportunity to have their Beatles and Mersey Beat memorabilia appraised for free by the experts.

The Beatles Story and Julien’s Auctions recently teamed up to take the event to London’s Hard Rock Cafe, which saw a stream of visitors attend with many exciting artefacts to be valued. One of the top finds was original Quarrymen member Rod Davis’ banjo, which was valued on the day at around £10,000.

Internationally renowned Julien’s Auctions have broken world records with the sale of Beatles memorabilia including John Lennon’s acoustic guitar which sold recently for a record $2.4 million, Ringo Starr’s Ludwig drum kit which sold for a record $2.2 million and much more.

At last year’s Liverpool event, a letter written by John Lennon addressed to The Queen was uncovered explaining the singer’s reasons for returning his MBE, the item was valued by Julien’s Auctions at around £60,000.

The owner, who wishes to remain anonymous, discovered the letter tucked away inside the sleeve of a record that was part of a collection of 45s he picked up for £10 at a car boot sale 20 years ago and had presumed it must have been a copy. Members of the public are being encouraged to search their homes for any hidden treasures, which could be worth thousands, and bring them along to the event, where Julien’s Auctions’ expert auctioneers and curators will be on hand to offer instant valuations.

‘Memorabilia Day’, Liverpool will take place in The Beatles Story’s Fab4 Cafe on Wednesday 25 October 2017, 12pm until 8pm.

JOHN AND YOKO ONO’S “NUTOPIAN EMBASSY” IS ON THE RENTAL MARKET AFTER ALMOST 50 YEARS

By Posted on 0 11

The Tribeca townhouse that the couple used as the mailing address for their ”conceptual country” in 1973 is now available for rent

A piece of New York history just hit the rental market: the Tribeca townhouse that John Lennon and Yoko Ono used as the address for their “Nutopian Embassy” in 1973. For those who don’t remember, Lennon and Ono announced the birth of Nutopia, “a conceptual country” with no boundaries” and “no laws other than cosmic” when Lennon was being threatened with deportation in 1973. To prevent this, he sought diplomatic immunity and asked the United Nations for recognition as a Nutopian ambassador; in the process, he gave 1 White Street as the “embassy” address (the United Nations did not give recognition, but Lennon was also not deported).

Plot twist: The couple never actually lived in the townhouse, but for years, mail addressed to “John Lennon and Yoko Ono, c/o Nutopian Embassy” was delivered there; in 1980, after the musician’s tragic death, condolences flooded the mail. Now, after almost 50 years, the gut-renovated, 2,600-square-foot townhouse is on the rental market for $19,500 per month (Todd Lewin and Michael Rubin at CORE have the listing). With four stories of living space, 3 bedrooms, 2.5 baths, and a private roof terrace, the property has a lot to offer—including some musical history.
