Chair of London 2012 Lord Coe said everyone had great memories of the Games, but now there's a chance to own part of it.

Whether you are a seasoned collector or simply looking for an Olympic or Paralympic souvenir, there will be something of interest for everyone.

And to make this event really special, we really want the amazing volunteers to be involved and help us give London 2012 a good send off.

– Lord Coe

The sale takes place between 10am and 6pm on Saturday 27 and Sunday 28 April at the City of Coventry stadium, which hosted some Olympic events. The auction of 80 Games and memorabilia items takes place at 11.30am on the Saturday.
