Beatles fans in the UAE are in for a treat as luxury retailer Harvey Nichols celebrates 50 years of the legendary group by bringing a taste of Liverpool's award-winning Beatles Story attraction to the Middle East.

The Hidden Gallery, part of the traveling exhibition which will be unveiled in Harvey Nichols Dubai in May, contains recently discovered photographs of the Fab Four shot in 1963 and 1964, just as the young band was on its way to stardom.

They were snapped by Paul Berriff, now a BAFTA award-nominated director, after he was given unlimited access to the band just months before Beatlemania gripped the world.

The exhibition will be revealed with a window scheme which will showcase a visual journey through the Beatles music and with graphic elements including exclusive footage obtained throughout their musical career.

Special Beatles memorabilia will be on sale in a unique pop-up shop located on Level 2 where customers can purchase the unique photographs.

Four original Madame Tussauds waxworks of the famed band will be also exhibited throughout the month of May. Activities will include live music performed by tribute band The Mersey Beatles.

In addition to showcasing the musical and cultural heritage of the city of Liverpool, those who purchase photographs at Harvey Nichols, will also go into a draw to win a trip to city.
