Discount at the Magical Beatles Museum
Magic Weekend ticket holders can receive a 20% discount on entry to the Magical Beatles Museum on Saturday 25th and Sunday 26th May.
The collection belongs to Roag Aspinall-Best. He has been a collector of Beatles memorabilia for over thirty years.
Roag’s father was Neil Aspinall. Neil was the Beatles road manager and confidante and later became head of Apple Corps spearheading such Beatle ventures as Beatles No 1, Let It Be Naked, The Anthology and Love (Cirque du Soleil).
Neil’s unique connection to the Beatles is evidenced in the museum by the numerous pictures of him with them. We see him at one point standing in for a sick George Harrison for a TV appearance on the Ed Sullivan Show.
The Beatles counted Neil as their friend and he was trusted by them implicitly. Neil was surrounded by The Beatles and so, throughout his life, was Roag.
Roag’s brother is Pete Best. He was a member of The Beatles for two years from 1960-1962 and was in for the ride from The Casbah Coffee Club through to Hamburg, the Cavern and ultimately Abbey Road Studios.
Pete’s insights into the early years are without doubt of significant importance to the legend that is The Beatles.
Roag’s mother was Mona Best. As the founder of the Casbah Coffee Club, the first rock and roll club in Liverpool, Mona has been dubbed the “Mother of Mersey beat”.
She provided The Beatles with a venue to practice, play and perform in that Paul McCartney affectionately refers to as “our club”. She managed many of their early business affairs and amongst many other things championed their return to Hamburg after their deportation.
