Visitors are invited to bring along up to three items to the event, which runs from 11am to 3pm. The event follows a similar valuation day held at the London Hard Rock Cafe earlier this year.

Steven Maycock of Bonhams said: “Bonhams is delighted to be the guests of the Edinburgh Hard Rock Cafe. In London we unearthed memorabilia relating to the Beatles, the Stones, Marc Bolan and the Sex Pistols.”
