A rare early group of autographs from all four of The Beatles, inscribed ‘lots of love from The Beatles’, will go on sale on Wednesday in Grantham.

These autographs were signed in early 1963 when the group had just recorded their first album and were gaining success. They were one of several bands who played the Elizabethan Rooms in Nottingham on March 7, 1963, where the compere for the evening got the Fab Four’s signatures in their dressing room.

Grantham resident valuer and auctioneer Luke Handley said: “Considering their career together spanned less than a decade, the legacy left behind by The Beatles is considerable. Their influence on popular culture, fashion and style has no equal, even now, 50 years later and cannot be underestimated.”

The autographs are frame glazed and mounted with the script ‘Elizabethan rooms, Nottingham, March 7, 1963, show compered by Keith Gordon. Supporting acts on the night, Jerry and The Pacemakers, Billy J. Kramer and the Dakotas, and The Big Three’.

The autographs will be sold at the Golding, Young and Mawer auction rooms on Old Wharf Road. Interested bidders can contact the salesroom on 01476 565118 or register online at www.goldingyoung.com
