Previously never-before-displayed Fab Four memorabilia will be showcased at the Victoria Street venue as it celebrates its two-year anniversary.
The iconic band sent a good luck message by telegram to Bill Shankly and Liverpool FC ahead of the club’s first-ever FA Cup triumph in May 1965.
Signed by all four Beatles, the telegram reads ‘Best of luck lads we’ll be watching on the tele. John Paul George and Ringo’.Liverpool went on to beat Leeds United in extra time of the Wembley showpiece.
The telegram will be publicly displayed at the hotel for six days from Monday, September 14 until Sunday, September 20.
The Shankly Hotel opened its doors in August 2015 and has welcomed over 150,000 guests in that time.
Chris Shankly-Carline, co-founder of the Shankly Hotel, said: “I still can’t quite believe we have this amazing hotel which honours my grandad.“He touched so many lives so it means everything that we can give fans, friends and family a place to come that pays tribute to his achievements for the city.The Shankly Hotel is everything and more than I ever imagined it would be and its first two years have been incredibly successful so it’s a great achievement for myself and the Shankly family along with everyone at Signature Living.”
