LONDON BEATLES DAY - AN OVERVIEW
The London Beatles Day has been attracting Beatles fans from all over the globe since 1990, Originally 2 shows a year were staged but due to increased demand this was increased to the current 4 shows per year. This enables fab 4 fans to come along and buy and trade their "fab 4" items on a regular basis keeping their collections updated, and of course to come along to meet all the other fans & collectors.
Since 2012, we have used two hotels , we move between the Sherlock Holmes Hotel in Baker Street (WV1 -. 2 doors along from the original Apple Boutique) and the Doubletree Hilton in Southampton Row.
Over the past decade the event has attracted dealers from all over Europe, Japan, Canada and the USA and collectors from all these countries plus many more!!
We aim to attract the country’s leading Beatles dealers to our show, often dealers from Europe attend and a vast range of merchandise is offered for sale, from original items through to recently licenced new merchandise. Our dealers will also buy your unwanted Beatles items and offer you valuations.
Online purchasing & auctions are very convenient in the “rat race” world we now live in, but there is no better way than to come and see the item you are thinking of buying.
We are very pleased to welcome Guests to the “London Beatles Day” – some we have known for many years now and consider our friends, some sadly no longer with us.
Guests attending over past years include the original 5th Beatle, Pete Best; Freda Kelly, official fan club secretary; Hunter Davies, official authorised biographer; “Mr Fix it “, Alistair Taylor; Quarrymen, Rod Davis & John Duff Lowe; Alf “Baby you can drive my car” Bicknell, Victor Spinetti actor the Beatles films, Brian Southall, Apple and author, Tony Bramwell worked for The Beatles, as well as many authors who have used the event to launch their books.
We are always looking for “Beatles people” to come along and share their memories with us – our quest to track down these people is never ending!!
When the London Beatles Day is held in the Doubletree Hilton, West End, [formerly the Park Inn and before that the Bonnington Hotel] in the central west end Southampton Row, WC1 London, very close to Oxford Street and theatre land (for theatre tickets & information the hotels concierge can assist).

The hotel is within easy walking distance from Euston station, a short bus ride from Kings Cross, and a 5 minutes walk from either Russell Square or Holborn underground.
