A Rickmansworth-based store that is one of the world’s leading sellers of film, television and music memorabilia is auctioning off more than 1,500 props and rarities in London.

The items, thought to be worth more than £11 million combined, include Christopher Reeve’s complete Superman costume from the 1978 film, the gloves of Star Wars villain Darth Vader, and a life-size Dalek from Doctor Who, with that item and others from the BBC sci-fi TV show having a percentage of the sale going to Children in Need.

There are also a number of rarities up for grabs, including a first-edition hardback copy of Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone, a legal title for UK ownership of the “J 8OND” licence plate and a Fraggle puppet from the TV show Fraggle Rock.

For music fans, there’s also a wide range of items available to them, such as the spacesuit David Bowie wore in the ‘Ashes to Ashes’ music video, the striped blazer Paul McCartney wore on The Morecambe & Wise Show and one of the iconic parka jackets Liam Gallagher has worn on stage.

CEO of Propstore, Stephen Lane, said: “Following our Los Angeles Entertainment Memorabilia Live Auction in June, which saw some of our best ever auction results, we’re thrilled to be back again with another incredible sale.

“Featuring a collection over 1,500 lots, we have an amazing array of content, ranging from Fraggle Rock to Friday the 13th – there really is something for everyone!”

The auction takes place live from the BAFTA 195 Piccadilly building in London from Thursday, November 3 to Sunday, November 6, starting at 3.30pm every day. Online proxy bids can be submitted. To register, visit this web link.
