During Beatleweek there was also a Beatles auction at the Paul McCartney Auditorium (Liverpool Institute for Performing Arts).
There were some nice items that I wanted to bid on:
- Lot 43: School photograph featuring Paul McCartney and signed by Paul aged 10 (£1250-£1500)
- Lot 79: Please Please Me album signed by George and Paul (£300-£400)
- Lot 163: Menu card for the Grand Central Hotel Belfast signed by John, George and Paul (£1200-£1500)
- Lot 300: Very rare Cavern Club photograph of The Beatles in 1961, complete with negative and copyright (£1500-£1750)
But in the end I just bought a signed copy of Mark Lewisohn's Tune In.
