At this time of year its compulsory to mention the Beatles. With the International Beatles Week and the Mathew Street Music Festival here in Liverpool its hard to avoid it and I’ll certainly be enjoying the weekend.
What I hadn’t realised is that National Museums Liverpool have a large collection of Beatles-related items which, apart form the odd Stuart Sutcliffe painting, rarely go on public display.
I discovered via their Blog that you can at least see the items online in their Online Beatles Exhibition. Lots of interesting stuff there. I never realised, for instance that there were Beatles Xmas Records which were exclusive to the Fan Club members.
