Description

Scarce signed program from the Fab Four’s 1963 Winter Gardens engagement

Exceptional original 5.75 x 9 program for The Beatles at the Winter Gardens at Margate, Kent, England, from July 8-13, 1963, two pages, beautifully signed on the front cover in bold blue ballpoint, "Paul McCartney," "John Lennon," "George Harrison," and "Ringo Starr." Each Beatle signs beside his respective image, making for a stellar appearance. In very good to fine condition, with light soiling, overall creasing, and staple holes to the upper right corner. Accompanied by a letter of authenticity from noted Beatles expert Frank Caiazzo, confirming that "these signatures date from the period, July of 1963."

The band played twelve shows over six consecutive nights at the Winter Gardens, with opening acts including the Dakotas, Billy J. Kramer, and comedian Derek Roy. Their nine-song setlist included 'Please Please Me,' 'I Saw Her Standing There,' and the energetic closing track, 'Twist and Shout.' An exemplary autographed piece from the Beatles at the start of their fame, boasting four gorgeous signatures.
