"We also look forward to discovering the fascinating treasures and artifacts Fab Four fans and collectors will bring in on what will be another spectacular Memorabilia Day."

Members of the public are being encouraged to search their homes for any hidden treasures, which could be worth thousands and to bring them to the event where experts from Julien’s Auctions will be on hand to offer FREE instant advice and valuations.
