Cat has the cream of music artwork
A silent auction is being held in aid of charity with the highest bidders walking off with one of a number of psychedelic-style posters. The Mean Eyed Cat in Newcastle has been hosting a small show by world-renowned artist Drew Millward who has created artworks for some of the biggest bands, festivals and exhibitions on Earth.
He has very kindly donated a set of screen prints and is delighted that all proceeds are heading to St Oswald’s Hospice which provides care to North East adults, young people, babies and children with life-limiting conditions.
To bid, simply call into the pub on St Thomas’ Street (near Haymarket bus station), fill in a card, pop it in the box, and wait for the call to see if you’ve bid enough to own it. And, you know the drill – treat yourself to a pint while you’re there.
Hurry though, the silent auction is drawn on Sunday July 28.
While on the Mean Eyed Cat thread, owners Dave and Julie Campbell have sold The Schooner in Gateshead to Paul Smith, who already operates two pubs in the town renowned for good pub food and live music – The Stone Trough and the Three Tuns, The Schooner is the ideal venue to continue those traditions, so let’s wish Paul, his staff and his associates all the best for a great future.
