The Beatles

From Rhythm & Blues and Rock & Roll to ‘70s pop and Gangsta Rap, Sotheby’s London will celebrate over 50 years of popular music this September as it opens its doors for the ‘Rock & Pop’ exhibition and sale. Over 100 objects relating to the most celebrated and influential musicians of modern times, many of which have never been exhibited in public before, will be brought together for this new event on the London calendar. Among the highlights are objects that changed the course of popular music, including the 1962 contract that cemented the relationship between the Beatles and Brian Epstein, Bob Dylan’s typewritten lyrics for his revolutionary song ‘A Hard Rain’s A-Gonna Fall’ and the grand piano played by ABBA on their most celebrated songs.

Visitors to the exhibition will be able to explore musical instruments, handwritten lyrics, stage costumes and historic photographs relating to the greats of Rock and Pop while listening to the sounds that made them famous. Beats by Dr. Dre headphones will be installed at listening stations throughout the gallery, allowing visitors to immerse themselves in the music associated with these great musical milestones.

The auction, taking place on Tuesday 29 September, will be preceded by a five day public exhibition at Sotheby’s New Bond Street galleries. Please find a full press release attached and do get in touch for further details and images.

Lord's Pavilion

As the cricket season draws to a close, Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) can report a surge in popularity for guests seeking a full day of luxury hospitality at Lord’s during a Test Match in 2016. In the Home of Cricket’s most iconic venues – the Captains’ Lounge and Marylebone Suite – hospitality packages which included a hearty breakfast, sumptuous four-course lunch and luxury afternoon tea, sold out quickly for the first three days of the England v Sri Lanka and England v Pakistan Investec Test Matches. Private Boxes with the best views of the action for up to 18 guests also sold out fast for the same days. MCC revealed a sharp increase in revenue for its 2016 Sri Lanka Test Match hospitality packages compared with 2014 when the team last played England at Lord’s. Revenues for hospitality were up by nearly 30% over the same period in 2014 whilst private box sale revenues were up by a healthy 60%. Nick Kenton, MCC Head of Sales, Meetings & Events and Hospitality, said: “2016 has been a fantastic year for enjoying a day of cricket whilst experiencing the very best food, drink and hospitality that Lord’s has to offer. “This year’s sales figures show that hospitality packages at Lord’s were in huge demand and continue to be a key part of the summer sporting calendar.” Lord’s also expects high demand for its new hospitality packages, to be released this autumn for 2017 matches. These include England v South Africa from 6th to 10th July and England v West Indies from 7th to 11th September. Packages for the England v Ireland Royal London One-Day International on 7th May 2017 are also expected to sell out in record time. Details of all hospitality options at Lord’s can be found on its website
