Highly collectible vinyl by Spice Girls, J Hus, The Stone Roses, Genesis, Emeli Sandé and Eurythmics will also go under the hammer at the auction hosted by music memorabilia and vinyl records specialists Omega Auctions.

The auction will raise money for The BRIT Trust, the charity that promotes education and wellbeing through music and the creative arts by supporting causes that include the BRIT School and Nordoff and Robbins. The White Label Auction was first staged in October 2019 with last year's event raising a total of £44,000.

Dan Hampson of Omega Auctions said ahead of tomorrow’s (June 5) event: "We are excited to be part of the White Label Auction once more in what is always a highlight of our year.

"Demand for music memorabilia remains buoyant despite the recent squeeze on disposable income as collectors spy a strong investment opportunity, and with the lots coming directly from labels, combined with their rarity, we expect the usual keen interest and for last year’s total hammer price to be eclipsed."

You can browse the 200+ lots available and place a bid over on the Omega Auctions website.
