B34708 – Paul McCartney Autographed 1965 Handel’s Messiah Performance Programme (UK)
A programme for a performance of Handel’s Messiah that has been autographed on the back cover by Paul McCartney in blue ballpoint pen. The autograph was obtained at Colston Hall, Bristol on 18th December 1965. The signature comes with a letter from the original recipient that reads ‘I collected Paul McCartney’s signature on the back of this programme on December 18th 1965. I was attending a recital of Handel’s Messiah with friends and during the interval we saw Paul McCartney and asked for his signature. He told us that he had been to see his then girlfriend, Jane Asher, on previous occasions playing Juliet in Romeo and Juliet and thought he would go to something different that evening while he waited for her. She was playing at The Bristol Old Vic theatre which was on the same street’. The programme measures 15cm x 21cm (6 inches x 8.25 inches). The condition is excellent.
