Boat Online Auction | 27th April – 3rd May 2019

Fabulous prizes and experiences to be won.
All proceeds to Boat of Garten Community Hall.

Boat of Garten has hosted an annual auction sale of second-hand goods for over 30 years. The auction sale is a key fundraiser for the community hall, with funds used for running and upkeep of the hall as well as providing community groups with fabulous accommodation. Originally set up for the old Village Hall, the auction was typically held on the last Saturday of August, and has proved so popular it has become one of our main fundraising events of the year, alongside our Hogmanay Ceilidh.

With the increasing popularity of the much-loved Thunder in the Glen in August, this year we’ve moved our Auction to Saturday 4th May. Donations of second-hand goods can be made to Boat of Garten Community Hall in the weeks leading up to the big day, with collections of the larger items being arranged on the evenings of Thursday 2nd and Friday 3rd May. The sale itself will follow the same schedule as always: viewings can be made on the Friday evening, and from 10am on the Saturday before the Auction begins at midday with auctioneer Rod MacKenzie.

In order to embed the new date in people’s minds, we’re also going to run an online auction from 27th April to 3rd May, whereby we’ll be auctioning items donated by businesses or individuals to help raise awareness of the event, as well as a little extra funds.

BOAT ONLINE AUCTION: Prizes will be announced daily at midday from Friday 12th April to Thursday 26th April, with bids being taken from 27th April to 3rd May. Please use the link below to browse through the prizes, being sure to check the terms and conditions, and then click on the link to submit your maximum bid for the prize that takes your fancy. An update on bids for each item will be given on Wednesday 1st May, letting you judge whether or not you’d like to increase your bid before bidding closes at midday on Friday 3rd May. Winners of each item will be notified on Friday 3rd May, with prizes available for collection at Boat of Garten’s Auction Sale on Saturday 4th May or by arrangement if you can’t make it on the day.

‘Owdyado Theatre presents: Twisted Tales

Twisted Tales is an hilariously dark triple bill of riotous comedies that reveal the darkness under the domestic, the lengths people will go to for love, and how to wash blood stains out of a carpet. Why have three strangers; a brash Bristolian, a Cockney wide-boy and an introverted blogger been summoned to play a deadly locked-room mystery? Who is the bandaged man, obsessively in love and held captive inside an upmarket flat, counting down the seconds until it’s time for HER to return and the “thing I can’t say” to begin? How will two childrens’ TV presenters dispose of a corpse before time runs out? All they have is their wits, their arts & crafts skills & a foul-mouthed, criminal genius glove puppet. Join us for an anarchic night of Twisted Tales and consider “how far would you go to get what you want?

For their fifth outing ‘Owdyado Theatre brings you three twisted tales from three distinct voices. Inspired by cult series The Twilight Zone and Inside Number Nine this series of dark comedies is co-written by Daniel Richards and Charlotte Bister (A View from the Edge, Above Bored) as well as distinguished Cornish writers Brett Harvey (Brown Willy, Weekend Retreat) and Jon Welch (Spillikin, Swivelhead).
