Chichester Auctioneer leads Celebrities at Variety Club’s Showbusiness Awards

Henry Adams’s Auctioneer, Nick Hall, was honoured to be hosting the auction at the Variety Club Showbusiness Awards last night (28 April). Nick is also a BBC TV Antiques Expert and has appeared on Bargain Hunt and Flog It for more than 20 years, so he’s well-versed in how to make auctions successful as well as entertaining. 

Hosted by Amanda Holden, the star-studded event at the Londoner Hotel recognised some of the incredible achievements within the entertainment industry while fundraising for a brighter future for children through the charity, Variety Club.

Present were many of the greats from the world of showbiz, including Dame Joan Collins. Nick was also pictured with Alfie Boe, Emily Maitlis, Vanessa Feltz, Claire Sweeney, Tanya Bryer and Christopher Biggins.

Nick said, “It was a fantastic evening and a privilege to be among such incredibly talented people. I thoroughly enjoyed the auction and seeing so many famous faces in the audience getting involved. More importantly, we managed to raise an incredible sum for a truly wonderful cause.”

Variety is a children’s charity that provides practical help to disabled and disadvantaged children and young people in the UK. 

The event is understood to have raised around £350,000 with the final amount to be confirmed. 

Closer to home, Nick is currently touring Henry Adams offices to provide valuation advice for their Chichester Sale Room. The next auction will be held there on 23rd May, with consignments of collectables, antiques and fine art now being considered for sale.
