Forever Manchester’s very special Manchester music-themed online auction is now open for bids. Collectors Items, VIP packages, Signed Rarities and Music Memorabilia are all up for grabs.

On the back of the success of our online art auction in 2020, which raised £8,000 for community groups throughout Greater Manchester, we are running another auction in October, but this time focusing on Manchester music. 

The auction contains a fantastic selection of items, including a whole load of music memorabilia, which will all be available to bid for, until the auction closes at midnight on Sunday 31st October.


Some of the items included in the auction will be:

  • A VIP Package for the original Manchester band, The Halle Orchestra.

  • Signed drumsticks by Mike Joyce, drummer of The Smiths.
  • Front row seats for a sold out in-conversation with Shaun Ryder and John Robb at Salford Lads Club.
  • Signed Blossoms t-shirt and accompanying CD and Cassette.

There will also be the opportunity to bid for a recording session and track mastering at Black Triangle Studios; a personal message made by broadcaster/ DJ/ musician Clint Boon; and recording a podcast with Capital Radio’s Wingman.

Other music items include a signed box set by New Order; a signed limited edition of Jane Weaver’s current album ‘Flock’, plus a special back catalogue collection from Denise Johnson, alongside a VIP stage-side table for four people at Matt and Phred’s, and a guided walk for up to 10 people from The Modernist around Manchester city centre.

Plus, there will be lots of other music-themed signed prints, photographs and artwork by Trevor Johnson, Kevin Cummins, Leo Stanley, Mancsy, Sophie Nixon, Justin Eagleton and many more…

Across the duration of the auction we will posting the available lots across our social media platforms, so keep an eye out for more details!

The Forever Manchester Music Auction is a brilliant opportunity to pick up some rare and unique items to add to personal music collections or to give as special presents to those hardcore music fans in your life.
