Below are some photos of The Beatles Official Fan Club Christmas Records given exclusively to fan club members only.
Before Capitol Records gained the exclusive rights for Beatles recordings in the U.S., VeeJay Records used this sleeve to release Beatles 45’s (I am not sure but probably Please Please Me/From Me to You) during the 1964 Christmas season.
In 1963 and 1964 The Beatles performed in their own Christmas Shows. They performed their latest songs and took part in comical skits. Other groups such as Billy J. Kramer and The Dakotas were also part of the show. These shows were mostly in London though one took place in Liverpool and one in Bradford. Below is a copy of a souvenir program.
