The Sheffield Assay Office has been the proud owners of a wonderful punch bowl and cups since the year 2000.  Recently the punch bowl was removed from display at Millennium Galleries, Museums Sheffield and this has given Sheffield Assay Office the unique opportunity to host an event centred on the punch bowl and cups. And how fitting to host a summer punch party! 

The original punch bowl and four cups were designed and made by four Sheffield designer silversmiths, Alex Brogden, Chris Knight, Brett Payne and Keith Tyssen.  We are delighted that all four will be attendance at the event and will give a brief talk on their experiences of designing and making such an enormous piece of silverware. Since 2000 a further eight punch cups were added to the collection these were designed and made by local, national and internationally renowned silversmiths.

The punch bowl and cups will be the centre piece display to the summer punch party and we welcome you to purchase a ticket for the event. All money raised will go to the Master Cutler’s Challenge 2015, supporting Brathay Trust, Inspiring young people to succeed.

The event will take place on Thursday 16th July 2015 at Sheffield Assay Office, Guardians’ Hall, 2 Beulah Road, Hillsborough, S6 2AN,  6- 8pm.

Tickets are priced at £15.00 per person available from Sheffield Assay Office by phoning Hilary Theaker on 0114 2312121 Raffle on the evening at £5.00 a ticket, prizes kindly donated by Napoleons, Sheffield Assay Office, Wentworth Pewter, and The Famous Sheffield Shop.

Please note the punch bowl will not be used only a centre piece display.
