SWAN THEATRES SECURES JOHNNY DEPP AND KEIRA KNIGHTLEY AUTOGRAPHED PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN STILL FOR CHARITY AUCTION THIS APRIL!

The pace is set to be fast and furious on Monday 4th April, as the Swan Theatre plays host to a fundraising auction of prizes and promises.

Raising funds for Worcester Live – the charity that runs not only the Swan Theatre, but also Huntingdon Hall (the beautiful comedy gig and music venue in the centre of town), the Historic Ghost Walk of Worcester and the annual Worcester Festival – the auction will be led by expert and all-round great personality, Charles Robinson from Griffiths and Charles Auctioneers.

The staff of Worcester Live have been working hard to secure all sorts of unique and original lots to auction off on the night – and the hard work has been paying off, with a whole host of local companies stepping forward to donate all manner of services.

Lots so far include tea and a tour of the House of Commons with Worcester’s MP, Robin Walker, a Garden Guru Design Consultation with renowned Designer and Horticulturalist Frank Hardy courtesy of Webbs of Wychbold, and, most recently in, an iconic still from cult film Pirates of the Caribbean, signed by Keira Knightley and Johnny Depp. Who knew that the Swan Youth Theatre’s Artistic Director might have that stashed in the attic?!

Malvern-based fine bone china and ceramics specialists, Bronté Porcelain, have also contributed a ‘top lot’, having donated a completely unique, one-off piece specifically commissioned for the auction: an original painting of Worcester Cathedral on Bronté Fine Bone China by distinguished artist, Tony Young, beautifully mounted and framed.

Entry is free and the Theatre Bar will be open throughout for what promises to be a fantastic night out, and a great way to support the arts in Worcester, and the City’s local theatre.
