CHARITY AUCTION – LARGE SIGNED DERREN BROWN BILLBOARD

Posted in Derren Brown News

As some of you may remember, we held a competition at the end of the Svengali tour last year for people to win one of three large billboards that were displayed at the theatre.

We asked everyone to tell us what they would do with the board if they won it, and a lovely lady called Jackie wanted to win the board so she could put it in a charity auction to support the Cystic Fibrosis Trust.


Here’s a little more on them:

Since it was established in 1964, the Cystic Fibrosis Trust has actively supported excellence in research and clinical care, as well as providing practical support and advice to people with Cystic Fibrosis and their families. We are the only UK-wide charity focusing solely on CF.
We believe that everybody living with CF deserves the best possible quality of life with access to the best quality care and with a real hope for a better future. We will support them and their families to make this happen.
To do this, we fund high quality research to understand CF better and to develop new and better treatments, we set standards of CF care and review services to make sure they are meeting those standards, and we provide information and advice to people with CF and their families.



If you’re interested in supporting this worthy cause, and owning a unique Derren Brown billboard, The auction is now live and can be found on this link:

I’d love it if we could see more of this semi-regularly, maybe a new poster every 6-12 months … we could do it for charity every time.

That’s real nice of the lady, I wish I had the money to buy it though, ah never mind, as soon as I’m influential, famous and rich people will be wanting billboards of me, what comes around goes around, right? Legend you, Derren Brown!

Derren, thank you for helping in supporting and raising awareness for the Cystic Fibrosis Trust. After a tricky week health wise from my hospital bed in Papworth. Knowing that deeds of kindness by friends and yourself to raise money for the trust makes my fight to find a cure and live every day to the full so worth while. Today like every day, I may be struggling to breath but there’s a smile now firmly on my face. Thanks again so much. Sammie x

So wonderful that CF charity will benefit from the auction of the portrait. And a lovely lady as well for thinking of doing such a thing. Hope it raises a sizeable amount of money. Always surprises how generous people can be :)

I came to see the Infamous tour in Southampton (April 11). Derren is my biggest hero, and I found myself incredibly lucky enough to be up on stage with him. Derren was as genuine and charming as I'd always hoped (which proved a contrast to my nervous and shaky demeanour). He is a brilliant showman and an all-round pleasure to watch. The show was sensationally mind-blowing - I'll be sure that I never miss another. Thank you Derren, for everything that you do. Sorry I was so shaky! Grace

Derren Brown, For my daughter's birthday gift in November of 2013, I gave her a ticket to your show. For Christmas, I gave her a round trip ticket to London from Pensacola, Florida, our home. On my birthday, I flew from the Middle East, where I'm teaching English, to join her. On the 25th of March, you gave us your best. It was the highlight of our First English Spring Tour. No matter how far apart we are in the world or mindset, we both agree...we have no idea how you do it! And we like it that way.

I saw Derren at Leeds on 25th and I am still - 4 days on - utterly blown away by his incredible talent and incredible show! I have never ever had the pleasure of seeing him live before, but I will never miss an opportunity again. Someone as talented as Derren Brown is a MUST SEE. He's mesmerising, spellbinding, inspiring, jaw droppingly amazing. This experience is something I will take away with me forever and a day! Thank you SO much for bringing this show to Leeds! But goin forward, if travel roun te country to see you - you are THAT good :)
