The five Rotary Clubs of Wolverhampton are to hold a Charity Antiques Evening in aid of the four local authority special educational needs schools for which additional funds are vital in maintaining services for pupils. Green Park in Bilston, Penn Fields, Penn Hall, and Tettenhall Wood will all benefit from the proceeds.
Will Farmer from the BBC Antiques Roadshow will be at The Old School Hall at Wolverhampton Grammar School on Tuesday 23rd October where he will present a talk “From Rostrum to Roadshow”, a behind-the-scenes look at the BBC Antiques Roadshow, together with a walk down memory lane of some of the most famous finds from the programme and what happened to them after the cameras stopped rolling. He will also be available to look at items brought along by the audience.
Doors will open from 6.30pm when guests attending can bring along articles, preferably ceramic or glass which are his speciality, from which Will will choose examples to be included in part two of the evening as part of an illustrated talk. Limited to 40 pieces, first come first selected.
Tickets are on sale at £12 from Ian Rigby Jewellers of Codsall tel. 01902 845300.
