Top TV scripts up for auction
Two original scripts, from the forthcoming BBC TV Christmas special David Copperfield, are to come under the auctioneers hammer at the Brookmans Park Christmas Bazaar.
The scripts, which have been donated by the actress Pauline Quirk, who plays Peggotty, contain her original handwritten notes, comments and corrections.
Local author Tony Grounds who regularly works with Pauline says similar scripts fetched £1,200 at another auction recently. The scripts are just two of the items at an auction with a difference being held in the School Hall on Saturday November 13th to raise money for school funds.
Already many parents and local organisations have donated a wide variety of items including Christmas food and drink but visitors to the Bazaar will also be able to bid for a number of unusual items including a session of reflexology and a visit to the hairdressers.
There will also be items for the garden, an assortment of quality Christmas presents and even the chance to bid for the opportunity to design a Christmas Card and have it posted on the World Wide Web for all to see.
The Christmas Bazaar gets underway at 11am. There will be dozens of stalls selling books, toiletries, toys and food items as well as a display of crafts and the ever-popular tombola stall.
Visitors will be able to view the items for auction when the doors open but bidding in the auction will get underway after lunch. Pictures of the Bazaar will appear on this site as the event takes place and people with internet access will be able to download and pint off the best shots of the day for free.
