The auction of drum and music memorabilia with Martin on the rostrum with Dawsons assisting and live streamed via thesaleroom.com will be held on July 18.

The auction will follow the 21-day NHS Drum Marathon which has seen musicians  drumming for daily 12-hour shifts. It has been live streamed from the ‘Drumathon 2020’s Lockdown Studio’ throughout its duration from May 29-June 18. The project has already raised more than £30,000 for the NHS.

Among the lots is this pair of glasses once owned by Bee Gees' Robin Gibb.
