Beatles memorabilia up for sale

Items belonging to George Harrison are going under the hammer

A collection of Beatles memorabilia owned by George Harrison's family is expected to sell for six figures at auction next month.

It includes a leather jacket he bought during the band's stint in Hamburg which he wore on stage in Germany and at the Cavern Club.

It is expected to sell for around £120,000 at the sale at Bonham's in London on December 12.

Also in the collection, which was given by George to his brother, Harry, and other relatives are a pair of custom-made boots which could sell for around £15,000.

A guitar owned by fellow Beatle Sir Paul McCartney in the 1950s will also be sold with an estimated price of £30,000.

George, who died in 2001, wrote some of the band's most enduring songs including Something and Here Comes The Sun.

He also worked as a film producer, helped back Monty Python's Life Of Brian and through his company Handmade Films was responsible for The Long Good Friday, Time Bandits and Mona Lisa.

Leo:

Trust your intuition about a domestic matter. If you think it's time to get a new place, start looking for one. You could find a home that cultivates tranquillity and relaxation. Escaping the fray will be a relief. Although you enjoy socialising, you also crave private time. Being able to watch movies, read books and listen to music replenishes your batteries. A needy relative could request help. This would be a good time to establish some healthy boundaries. Stop dropping everything for this relative's benefit.More
