'The Fab Four' was one of the biggest bands in the world in the 60s, and remain to be ever popular today, with Paul McCartney performing Beatles hits at this year's Glastonbury Festival to thousands of people.

The autographs going for auction were collected by the vendor, a Beatles fan, back in the 1960s, when they performed at The Finsbury Park Astoria, now the Rainbow Theatre.

The vendor looked for the autographs over lockdown after mentioning that she had them to the auctioneers at a valuation day.

This lot will be going to auction on July 14 at 1pm, with those interested able to view the book every day before the auction date.

Oliver Miller, managing director at the auctioneers said: "It is very exciting to be able to showcase and auction some really iconic autographs from the music industry, I mean who hasn't heard of The Beatles?

"We have seen some great autographs come through our music auctions and we also recently auctioned a Jimi Hendrix autograph, that sold for an impressive £6,100.

"To have the autographs of two more iconic and very successful bands for over the past 50 years in our music and music memorabilia auction this week is very exciting."
