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.
