Do you have a piece of Beatles memorabilia hidden at home? If so, have you wondered what it could be worth?
Now there’s a chance to find out.
The Beatles Story has teamed up with Julien’s Auctions (dubbed the ‘world-record breaking auction house to the stars’) to hold a special Memorabilia Day this Wednesday.
Fab Four fans and collectors will have the chance to get their Beatles bits and bobs valued by expert auctioneers and curators.
Beatles memorabilia, particularly when it comes to rare artefacts and pieces with an interesting story attached, are always sought after by collectors from around the globe.

CEO Darren Julien said: “We’re very excited about what we might uncover during this special visit to where it all started for The Beatles.
“We hope we are able to make someone’s dream come true and evaluate a rare and exciting piece of memorabilia.”
