West End Flea Market returns this May

The Theatrical charity Acting for Others (a fundraising organisation for 14 UK theatrical and welfare charities)  has announced the return of the West End Flea Market, on Saturday 16th May  at St Paul's Church, Covent Garden. This follows its  hugely successful debut last year which raised  over £26,000 with theatre fans lining up for memorabilia and a chance to meet West End stars.

Top West End shows set up a variety of uniquely designed stalls offering theatrical memorabilia, signed posters, bric-a-brac and special items for auction. Last year, company members from The Book of Mormon, Hamilton, The Phantom of the Opera, Mamma Mia!, Les Miserables, The Mousetrap and The Royal Opera House took part with Only Fools and Horses winning Best Dressed Stall with an array of delights including Trigger's Kissing Booth and Mischief Theatre's The Play That Goes Wrong won the showstopper competition judged by Christopher Biggins, Celia Imrie and Wayne Sleep.

The shows hosting a stall will compete to win in a brand new theatrical challenge, with judges to be announced. The public are invited to come and cheer on their favourite show and the winner will be announced at the event. In addition, there will be signings, a theatrical tombola, auctions and all sorts of exciting theatrical memorabilia up for grabs as well as the chance to meet stars from hit shows.

For those unable to attend the event, a donation to Acting for Others can be made at www.justgiving.com/ctcafo.
