Bidding for Sandy Powell’s star-studded suit begins


We’re amazed by the support we’ve had so far in helping us reach the 75% mark. Nearly 5,000 funders from across the UK and around the world have now joined the campaign to help #SaveProspectCottage.

You may recall close friend of Jarman and costume designer Sandy Powell. She wore a suit to the 2020 Critics’ Circle, BAFTAs and Oscars ceremonies which has been signed by hundreds of film stars and luminaries including Scarlett Johansson, Brad Pitt, Renée Zellweger, Bong Joon Ho, Leonardo DiCaprio, Robert De Niro, Al Pacino, Elton John, Joaquin Phoenix, Laura Dern, Saoirse Ronan and many more. It is all to get behind the campaign and raise awareness.

Sandy has now donated her suit to be auctioned online at Phillips from 4 March until 11 March 2020. Not only will someone get the chance to own this starry piece, but all funds raised at auction will go to the appeal to save Prospect Cottage.

With the campaign deadline of 31 March fast approaching the auction of Sandy’s suit will raise critical support, but at this stage every donation counts. So, if you know anyone who’s been thinking about donating, let them know there’s still time to get involved and select an exclusive reward inspired by Jarman and Prospect Cottage.
