Antiques Hunt in Box with Philip Taubenheim

Thu, Mar 2nd 2023 at 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

The life of an auctioneer



The well-known local auctioneer, Philip Taubenheim, will be holding an Antiques event at Box Village Hall on Thursday 2nd March.

Philip is Managing Director, senior auctioneer, valuer and cataloguer at Wotton Auction Rooms. He has spent all his working life in the world of Antiques and Auctions and, when not dealing with the day-to-day dealing of the business, he is a contributor to the Antiques Roadshow.

When he visits Box on 2nd March he will give a talk generally about the life of an auctioneer, following which he will talk about the attendees’ treasures, making selections from the display tables. Attendees are invited to bring items of interest rather than just of value, for him to talk about.

The Village Hall will be open from 6:15pm on 2nd, and attendees who have items they would like Philip to talk about are invited to bring them before 7:00pm which is when Philip will start his talk. A welcome drink will be given to all guests on arrival, and there will also be a raffle.

There will be an interval at approximately 7:45pm to enable Philip to review the displayed items and select the sequence in which he will talk about them. During this interval a cash bar will be available, and attendees will also be able to view the displayed items. The talk will resume at about 8:15pm, and Philip hopes that he will have sufficient time to talk about many of the items that will have been displayed. We estimate that the talk will end at about 9:00pm with the raffle draw.

The ticket cost for this event is £10, payable in advance, and this includes a drink on arrival. There is no charge for displaying items for Philip to talk about.

To book tickets please email nailsworthrotaryclub@gmail.com by 24th February, giving your name, the number of tickets required and your mobile phone number.  A link will then be sent to your mobile so you can pay by card, and all payments will be secure via PayPal.

This event is being brought to Box by Nailsworth Rotary, and the proceeds will be donated to Nailsworth Youth Club and MARAH.

Fundraising for charities and helping members of our local community are just two of the reasons why people join Rotary. Friendship, fellowship and having fun are almost as important.
