2016 Celebrity Hat Auction

(On eBay from 22 - 31 January

Ed Sheeran

It's that time of year again when we dust off our little black book and start approaching the world's most popular personalities to donate their treasured hats to the highest bidder for our Celebrity Hat Auction 2016.

A fantastic range of celebrities have donated fabulous hats to St Mungo's Broadway since the auction's launch in 2011 including Brian, May, Ed Sheeran, Joanna Lumley, Sir Elton John, Dame Vivien Westwood and Benedict Cumberbatch to name a few.

Most are signed and there is often a story hidden behind the hat. Last year Sir Ranulph Fiennes gave us his special beanie which he wore on a world record expedition to the North Pole, and The Pet Shop boys donated their amazing hats worn on stage during the band's ‘Electric' world tour in 2014.

The auction will run on Ebay from 22 - 31 January, with names for this year's celebrity line-up being released nearer the time, so keep your eyes peeled.
