Accompanied by a letter from the original recipient that reads ‘The date was November 1963 and we were a group of very excitable teenagers who had booked to see the Beatles in a show at the ABC Cinema in Exeter, Devon, SW England. We were in the same class at school so we were all 16 years old.

After school on the day of the concert we walked into the town centre of Exeter, still in our school uniform, and roamed around the shops. There, outside Boots the chemist were four lads with hair that was instantly recognizable, it was of course the Fab Four. We were all very excited and they chatted to us and asked if we were coming to the concert “oh yes” we were overwhelmed , they weren’t much older than us and seemed so very ‘normal’.

They asked if we would like their autographs, so we went to the side door of the cinema and waited ‘till they came back with the signed picture. We often say how lucky we were to meet them at the start of their brilliant career and be part of this whole new era of music that defined our teenage years. Their music still has the ability to bring back fabulous memories of parties, boyfriends, friendships.

My goodness how we screamed that night as they sang just for us. Happy days, happy memories’.

The promotional card measures 19cm x 12.5cm (7.5 inches x 4.9 inches). The card has been folded in half and laid flat, trimmed on the left edge. The condition is very good. Accompanied by Letters of Authenticity from Beckett Authentication Services (BAS) and Tracks UK.
