Since the London 2012 Olympic Games last summer, most people have found themselves wishing that they had a complete Mary Poppins costume from the opening ceremony in their wardrobe.
Good news, therefore, awaits: volunteers and members of the public will get their chance to buy a unique and wonderful souvenir, or indeed a unique and awful souvenir from the Games at the end of this month.
The opportunity comes as LOCOG prepare to hold a two-day sale of hundreds of items that were used during the Games, including costumes and props from all four ceremonies, sports equipment used in participation, torch relay uniforms, and venue and street banners.
Signed photos, programmes and tickets will also be available for purchase, as well as other official London 2012 merchandise, all at reduced prices.
Seb Coe, the chairman of LOCOG, said: "Everyone has great memories of the Games but now this is an opportunity for people to own a unique piece of the Games. Whether you are a seasoned collector or simply looking for an Olympic or Paralympic souvenir, there will be something of interest for everyone.
"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."
The highlight of the weekend will be the exclusive auction of 80 Games memorabilia items, which will take place at 11.30am on the Saturday. This will include:
- Four Olympic Torches including one signed by Ben Ainslie
- Framed Team GB cycling jersey, signed by 11 Olympic gold medallists
- Framed Team GB cycling jersey, signed by Bradley Wiggins
- Framed Team GB swimming trunks, signed by Tom Daley
- A life-size Olympic and Paralympic Merrythought bear
- A car bonnet signed multiple Great British sporting legends
- A pink ‘Diana’ javelin, signed by Jessica Ennis
- A large scale London 2012 Royal Mail stamp, signed by Mo Farah
- And, of course, the aforementioned complete Mary Poppins costume from the Olympic Opening Ceremony
The sale will take place between 10am and 6pm on Saturday 27th and Sunday 28th April at the City of Coventry stadium, which hosted 12 matches during the Olympic football tournament.
