Home to Beatlemania
A little piece of Beatle history was founded here
Location: 13 Monmouth Street, WC2H
Description: The Summer of 1963 saw the launch of the Beatles Book, the only officially authorised monthly magazine at the time devoted to all things John, Paul, George and Ringo.
Within two months of the first issue 'Beatlemania' broke out in Britain and public demand sent the circulation soaring. It was at this time that Press Officer to the Fab Four 'Tony Barrow' established the national headquarters for the fan club actually above is own Press Office at Service House.
13 Monmouth Street was the address and here lies a little piece of Beatle history - happy days!
