An original poster for The Beatles when they played at the Royal Hall in Harrogate has fetched £3,000 at auction.

The Fab Four performed their only Harrogate gig on March 8, 1963 — just as they were on the cusp of superstardom.

They were supported by two local Harrogate bands, The Apaches and The Mustangs.

One of the members of The Apaches kept this poster, and it was purchased in the 1980s by the vendor from a picture framer in Harrogate.

It sold for £3,000 at Tennants Auctioneers’ toys, models and collectables sale on Friday last week (December 8).

A copy of The Beatles White Album, autographed by Paul McCartney, also sold for £1,800.

The album was purchased by the vendor in 1968 from Wilson’s in Norwich, but he was able to get it signed by his musical hero in 2001 visited the University of East Anglia where he worked.

Tennants Auctioneers, in Leyburn, North Yorkshire, holds over 80 sales a year.
