50 years on from the Beatles first real gig in Manchester - and an old poster could be worth £10k

Their name is inextricably linked with that other city Liverpool. But the Beatles were regular visitors to Manchester too, and this week marks the 50th anniversary of their first proper professional gig here, writes Paul Taylor. Pauline Clegg remembers well how Ringo Starr liked his fried eggs...flipped over onto the yolk. She remembers chatting with a young John Lennon, and thinking that he found the business of being a rising pop star “quite daft”. “They were ordinary lads, dead cheeky. John was fascinating to talk to,” recalls Pauline, known affectionately to the Beatles as “Mrs Cloggie”.
