The Hidden Gallery will be closed from April 17, 2016 to make way for a new exclusive exhibition. 'Pattie Boyd: George, Eric and Me' will open to the public on May 6, 2016 for a limited time of six months. The Hidden Gallery will then return to The Beatles Story on October 1, 2016 when the temporary exhibition closes.
A beautiful collection of rare photographs documenting The Beatles' 1963-4 tour, photographer Paul Berriff discovered these stunning pictures in his attic, where they had remained "hidden" for almost fifty years. Based at the Beatles Story Pier Head, the Hidden Gallery is an absolute must-see.
Thirty eight black and white shots of the Fab 4 on tour with singer Helen Shapiro which were taken between 1963-64, were unearthed by photographer Paul Berriff in the attic of his home. The images show John, Paul, Ringo and George in unguarded moments, rehearsing on stage, smoking in their dressing room and relaxing with drinks and snacks.
Paul Berriff, who shot the images while working as a 16-year-old editorial assistant on the Yorkshire Evening Post and is now a BAFTA award-winning photographer and documentary maker, says the photographs called 'The Beatles Hidden Gallery', have found their rightful home now they are on display at the Beatles Story, Pier Head.
These fantastic images are also available for sale at the Beatles Story's on site Fab4 Store with each of the 38 individual photos being produced in a limited edition run of 49, each signed by the photographer. The Hidden Gallery is part of the Beatles Story ticket.Buy Tickets
