Harrison received 52 mail sacks containing around 30,000 birthday cards. Two fans even sent him a door for the thousands of 21st birthday keys he received.

In the evening a private party was held in an upstairs room at the Ivy restaurant in London. Brian Epstein presented Harrison with a gold cigarette lighter. The Beatles and their guests, which included George Martin, Dick James, Jane Asher and Cilla Black, dined on turtle soup, smoked salmon and Chateaubriand steak.
