Friday 3oth November 7.30 pm - Charles Hanson Antiques Evening

In almost twenty years as an auctioneer, Charles has conducted more than 200 auctions, selling in excess of some 300,000 lots in the three years at his dedicated auction centre, for a total sum in excess of £10,000,000. A highlight of his career on the rostrum was bringing the hammer down on the sale of a Chinese Qianlong vase at £300,000, the highest price paid at Hansons Auctioneers thus far.

 

Charles has auctioned works of art from a number of historical collections; pieces including those of the Right Honourable Mr Richard Curzon of Kedleston Hall, and also from Sudbury Hall in Derbyshire. Further interesting and unusual sales have been Queen Victoria’s bloomers at £5,000, a Lord Nelson letter at a world record price of £52,000, and an oak collection of furniture which realised in excess of £180,000, following all of that with a rare diamond ring from a Scottish Castle which realised £92,000 in December 2014.

 

Charles is also a much sought after auctioneer of high profile national and international charity auctions and throughout his career has conducted over 150 such sales, helping to raise in excess of £4,000,000 for charitable causes such as Childline,  Asthma UK, The Stephen Lawrence Charitable Trust and Children in Need, along with Take That’s Gary Barlow. In 2002 Charles was chosen to become an expert on BBC One’s Bargain Hunt with whom he continues to film, and also appearing on every series of the BBC’s Antiques Roadtrip, and Flog It! Hansons Auctioneers established in 2005 and is now a thriving success in Etwall, Derbyshire.

Friday 7th December 8.00 pm - Wigston Brass Band

The history of The Wigston Band can be traced back to the nineteenth century, when it was originally founded as 'The Wesleyan Mission Band'. In 1902, the band changed its name to 'The Wigston Temperance Band' and again in the 1980s, dropping the word ‘Temperance’, many believe due to the drinking habits of its members!

Since then The Wigston Band Organisation has gone from strength to strength, now including three bands. The Horizon Band is for our very beginners where we provide instruments, quality teaching and encouragement to our younger players who are just starting out. The intermediate band within the organisation is called The Enterprise Band which is for members who have been playing a little longer and for those who enjoy a little more challenge. Both of these bands enjoy performing in the community, especially showing off the progress they have made at charity fundraising events.

Finally, The Wigston Band itself is the senior group within the organisation. Today, the band works hard within the community, performing many concerts and raising money for good causes, as well as teaching youngsters basic musical skills. The senior band enjoys performing and contesting to a high level, especially enjoying a trip to The National Brass Band Championships in 2013.  Currently having a playing strength of around 30 players with ages ranging from thirteen to ‘seventy something’, the band enjoys a mixture of fun, hard work and friendship whilst making wonderful music. All members really enjoy playing within such a family orientated environment as well as going out in public to play a wide range of musical genres, anything from jazz to classical, pop to Christmas carols! We hope you enjoy listening to our efforts here!
