In the countdown to Leeds & Reading 2014, Martin House Children’s Hospice and Festival Republic present our second ‘Charity Music Auction’.
Acts, mainly from Leeds & Reading 2013, have very kindly signed various pieces of music memorabilia to raise money for Martin House. The likes of Biffy Clyro, Frank Turner, Jake Bugg and The Lumineers have given items such as signed vinyl, a signed guitar, signed Leeds Festival posters and a signed set list.
The bidding commences on our eBay page on Friday 7th February, with the items available to preview here from 4th February. The auction following 2012’s festivals raised a fantastic £5,000 and, as importantly, attracted a new audience to the charity.
This innovative way of fundraising is a result of our strong relationship with Festival Republic, who have supported the hospice since 2004. Their connection later led to the inception of our Centre Stage fundraising music competition, for local under 21 year olds, where winning acts perform at both Leeds and Reading. Now in its fifth year, Martin House are currently accepting registrations.
