Preview with champagne and canapés, Friday 16 February, £20 in advance 6:30 – 9pm  Bookings
Secret Postcard Sale, Saturday 17 February, 10am

Celebrities and renowned artists are amongst those participating in the Secret Postcard Sale at Messums Wiltshire in aid of Wardour Primary School in Wiltshire.

Royal favourite landscape and racehorse painter Charles Church, portrait painter Jemma Phipps and local artist Tom Hoar join a host of artists creating artworks for the sale.

Celebrities including Hollywood director Guy Ritchie will also submit a postcard sized artwork, all of which will be signed on the reverse. Students from Bath University are taking part as well as parents, friends and accomplished local artists.

The postcards will be exhibited anonymously and shown at the champagne and canapé preview on Friday evening ahead of the sale on Saturday morning.  All postcards will be priced at £40 whoever the artist, so take a chance by a collection of wonderful works and who knows you may have a star of today and maybe a star of tomorrow as well

As organiser of the sale, local mother Chloë Luxton says “This is an exciting opportunity to own an original work of art by an award-winning artist or celebrity…knowing that the sale has benefited the local community.”

Funds raised by the Secret Postcard sale will go towards the purchase of a yurt to be used for Forest School activities and general teaching. It will be heated and used all year round with weekly lessons for every child.

The Yurt will be situated in the beautiful back garden at Wardour School amongst planted trees and vegetable beds; it will become a hub for all outside activities and be a huge benefit to the school.

“Wardour’s forest school project teaches the children many life skills, increases their self-confidence and enthusiasm for learning in a woodland environment.”
