Bonhams x National Saturday Club

Special Projects Assistant to Sir John Sorrell CBE, 2017-2020

The National Saturday Club offers 13–16 year olds across the UK the opportunity to study creative subjects that inspire them at their local university, college or cultural institution, for free, every Saturday morning. Launched in 2009, the initiative was conceived by John and Frances Sorrell, building on their own experiences of free art-school classes in the 1960s. As Special Projects Assistant to John Sorrell, I was involved in various aspects of the National Saturday Club, including editing the website and drafting papers. In 2019, I organised a charity auction hosted by Bonhams, London, to raise funds for the ongoing development of the Club's national network and programme, liaising with artists and Bonhams Post-War and Contemporary Art department. The total funds raised at the auction, held at Bonhams, Bond Street in October 2019, were close to £200,000, with lots contributed by Frank Auerbach, Bridget Riley, Antony Gormley, Edmund de Waal, Phyllida Barlow, Richard Long, Gerhard Richter, Barnaby Barford, Mark Titchner, Fernando Casasempere, Shezad Dawood, Tess Jaray, Tom Price, Jennifer Lee, Garry Fabian Miller, Michael Young and Charlotte Verity.
