Woodend Barn Banchory » Pull Up A Chair Auction & Fundraising Dinner
February 10, 2015
Over the past 20 years Woodend Barn has grown to become Aberdeenshire’s largest multi-arts venue, enhancing the lives of over 13,000 people each year. Our Fundraising Dinner aims to allow us to continue providing a vital cultural hub in the region, and Scotland, by supporting us through the next stage in our development.
The highlight of the night will be our Silent Auction. Showcasing many special items – including artworks from visiting performers Joan Armatrading, Jeremy Harding and Twin Atlantic (top)- the biggest attraction will be a sculptural piece by celebrated artist Andy Scott of Charles Rennie Mackintosh (below). If you would like to bid on these items and are worried about missing out then fear not, members of the public are able to bid on the items in advance. All of the drawings have a reserve of £100 each on them, and the Twin Atlantic drumskin £200. To place your bid, please e-mail Katrina Dunbar at firstname.lastname@example.org – please note advance bidding closes at 5pm on Feb 21st and info on all items and guide prices can be accessed via Katrina also.
Of his contribution, Scott described all the efforts and aims of the Barn, “In difficult economic times arts organisations are increasingly under pressure to get “bums on seats” yet maintain artistic credibility and integrity. Something Woodend Barn certainly does.” We’re delighted to have the full support of all artists and performers involved in the auction.
Taking place on Saturday 21st February, special guest Dame Evelyn Glennie will perform on the night as well as take part in a Q&A session.
