Got a few quid to spare? Or just a few minutes? Either way, the Christie’s Pop Culture auction is worth browsing.

Plenty of items to pick from, mainly (but not exclusively) focusing on music – and if you are a fan of The Who, there’s a lot here to appeal.

Everything from a vintage suited owned by Pete Townshend through to John Entwistle’s old bass guitars, a drum knit signed by Keith Moon and Moon’s own briefcase, with much more besides. But the posters are perhaps some of the more interesting lots.
