Beanstalk

Offered free

Pantomime Beanstalk
Perfect if you're putting on ... err... Aladdin?
Originally from a professional theatre company, this has been passed on to us and is looking for a new home.
In three sections each about 2m long, so you've got about 6m of beanstalk.
Green velour fabric braced with hoops, maximum diameter about 65cm. The top section narrows to a point - see photos.
Green/yellow "trunk" spirals round the sections, with green tendrils and leaves.
Inside each section is a spiral of green LED lights, operated from a 9v battery sewn into a little pocket. All worked when I last checked, but some minor soldering to reconnect wires needed.
Collect from Wheatley, Oxfordshire.

Pantomime Backdrops

We have been touring children's musicals for many years and as age has taken over we have decided to close down. Perhaps some of your societies would be interested in some scenic cloths we have for sale at dramatically low prices. We now need the room!!!!!!

Unfortunately as we are based in Central London and the cloths are situated at our flat so we do not have the facility to open them up for inspection. You will just have to trust us in knowing they are all very presentable and in fairly good condition.

We would be grateful if you could send these details to anyone who you think might be interested.

Stage curtains for sale

Our parish council has just replaced the village hall stage curtains so that they match our furniture, so the old ones are for sale - any offer considered. I have attached a picture of them in situ, to give an idea of the size. They have fire retardant linings and are velvet.
They have seen better days, but there is nothing wrong with them, other than bits of fading here and there. They have a pelmet valance and tie backs. Ours were opened and closed by a winder, not by hand.

I would be willing to transport them to a suitable meeting place.

Grandfather clock for sale

I made this some years ago as a stage prop and it has been used in several productions. It's walnut veneer and has a quartz movement rather than a normal clockwork one. It received a comment in one adjudication in a play that shall remain nameless to protect the guilty - " ...the working grandfather clock seemed less wooden than some of the actors!....
7 foot tall, 17 inches wide and about 11 inches deep. breaks into 3 sections.
£50 ( where are you going to get a working grandfather clock for that sort of money?!)

It has brass handles to pull the bureau front down. It's in excellent condition, lovely teak wood. The odd fine scratch which wouldn't be noticeable for stage use I don't think, or could be teak oiled out easily.
It's complete inside with its drawers and leather writing surface.
My son in the photo is 6ft tall to show you height!
I'd like £30 for it.
