THE much loved Rutland Hippos are back for one more appearance before they are auctioned off next month.
They can be found peeping round the corners of the Rutland County Museum from now until May 4 when they will be taken back to St George’s Barracks to be auctioned to the highest bidder at a farewell gala dinner on May 21 in aid of Army Benevolent Fund and Arts for Rutland (to support local artists).
The auction will be hosted by television star, Julia Bradbury at 7.30pm, in the Officer’s Mess at St George’s Barracks, North Luffenham.
Tickets cost £35 per person and include pre-dinner drinks and wine on the table. Tables of 10 are available. Contact Joy Everitt – 07770543118, firstname.lastname@example.org or www.artsforrutland.co.uk
