PROG rock legend Rick Wakeman is supporting a charity auction raising money for music projects in the community.

Armonico Consort’s Once in a Lifetime Charity Auction takes place on November 15 with over 30 once in a lifetime experiences and unique lots going under the hammer.

Prizes include the chance to meet keyboard maestro Rick Wakeman, a tour of the Jaguar Classics Works with its former chairman Sir John Egan, an England Ashes cricket bat signed by Ashley Giles and Ian Bell, a music concert in your own home and a wine tasting with TV celebrity Oz Clarke.

The auction is part of Warwick-based music charity Armonico Consort’s £300,000 Encore Appeal.

Proceeds will fund children’s choirs in deprived areas, music workshops for young people with special educational needs, and Memory Singers groups for people living with dementia.

Among local donors and supporters are Howards of Stratford, Griffin’s Auctioneers & Valuers, Pragnell and The Wigley Group, alongside Roger Medwell and Baljit Shergill.

Bidding is open now and the auction takes place at 8.30pm on Wednesday November 15. Visit for full details.
