The Beatles’ management contract to be auctioned

The contract with Brian Epstein is signed by all the Fab Four

The Beatles‘ management contract with Brian Epstein, signed by the four band members on January 24, 1962, is to be auctioned on September 4 at London‘s Idea Generation Gallery.

The contract was signed by Epstein later in 1962 after he secured the band a contract with EMI.

Harold Hargreaves Harrison and James McCartney – the fathers of George Harrison and Paul McCartney respectively – have signed the contract along with their sons, as at the time the musical duo were both under 21.

A spokesperson for the gallery said that he expects the contract to fetch £250,000 at auction.
