2006 Royal British Legion Charity Auction - Theatre Tickets

This is the first of the ARRSE charity auctions which will look to raise money for the 2006 Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal. All money received from these auctions will go directly to the RBL. Last year we raised over £1000 and we're trying to make a substantial improvement on that this year.

This is a double auction for a pair of tickets (i.e we have two lots of 2 tickets!) to go and see the play "TAKING THE BLOOD OF BUTTERFLIES" by Sean Burn at Oval House Theatre, London. The tickets are for the evening of your choice anytime during the play's run (24 Oct - 1 Nov 06) except 26 Oct and 3 Nov.

The play is supporting Combat Stress and is described as
In a war-torn country a mother, her daughter and a peacekeeping force struggle to survive. Under siege and numbed by war, the soldiers are slowly slipping into madness. Soon their war cries of valour and duty are replaced by death and abuse.

sean burn’s poetic play explores the effect that war has on the mind and soul that is daily exposed to horror and conflict.
I therefore think its fair to say that it isn't a comedy ........

The auction will run for a week until 1800hrs on 22 Oct 06. Bids are either on this thread, by Private Message to me or by email to charity@arrse.co.uk. If requested, I'll keep the bids anonymous.

Thanks for your support and good luck with the bidding.
Dad, I am on leave in the wrong part of the country to go to that. However, if you had Sean Bean instead of Sean Burn, I might have been tempted to cancel.......
I can't believe that I haven't even had one bid on this ........
Can't make those dates but will donate

edited to say £35

I am in the smoke that first week.

Shameless bump.
Who's going to bid against my £55 for both tickets?

One hundred pounds for both
Are you bidding for both pairs ( if so then it would be a bid of over £115)
or just one of the pairs?

Ie do you want 2 or 4 tickets?

For clarifcation Why not bid on Set A and Set B

A the moment it stands at:

Set A - £ 55.00 - Northern_Biff
Set B - £ 60.00 - Cutaway

Until A_J clrifies his bid that is
