STACEY’S auctioneers was the home of rock ‘n’ roll nostalgia as the second Rock and Retro auction took place.

The bidding room was packed at the auction house in Websters Way, Rayleigh.

More than 700 pieces of rock ‘n’ roll history were on show for visitors to bid for.

Mark Stacey, one of the owners of the family business, was delighted to see such a strong turnout for the second-ever rock ‘n’ roll auction.

He said: “It was a really well attended sale, there was lots of interest from bidders inside the room as well as buyers bidding on our online platform from America and a few bids from Japan.”

One of the star lots at this year’s sale was a signed picture of the Beatles which went for £3,800 on the day.

Despite its huge value, Mr Stacey says that it is still second to a Beatles piece the auctioneers sold previously that was originally signed when the band performed in Southend in 1963.

The item was bought for around £5,000.

There was also lots of memorabilia of Canvey legends, Dr Feelgood.

Mr Stacey added: “There was plenty of nostalgia on the Dr Feelgood front and there are still a few lots that are available.

“In the main there was a lot of Dr Feelgood fans in the room bidding with even a couple of ex-roadies in the back of the bidding hall.”
