Popular art exhibition and online auction, Stars on Canvas, is back for its fifth year from November 17.

Original artwork created by celebrities such as Kylie, Sir Rod Stewart, Olly Murs, will.i.am, Ellie Goulding and Sir Tom Jones will sit alongside acclaimed artists including JJ Adams and Quiet British Accent, sporting heroes Francois Pienaar to John Terry, celebrated children’s illustrators Peter Firmin (Bagpuss and The Clangers) to Axel Scheffler (Zog) and many more.

This is a chance to own a unique piece of artwork by your favourite artist, illustrator, singer or actor, or would make the perfect gift for a loved one this Christmas, with bids starting at just 99p.

The London exhibition runs from November 23 to 27 at Quadrant Arcade, Regent Street.

Each and every canvas will be sold in aid of Willow, a WGC-based charity that is the only national charity working with seriously ill young adults aged 16 to 40 to fulfil uplifting and unforgettable Special Days.

This is the fifth Stars on Canvas, with the previous four auctions raising more than £230,000 for Willow.

Bob Wilson, Arsenal legend and Willow co-founder, said: “This much anticipated art spectacular takes more than a year to collate.

“Together our artists, illustrators, actors, singers and sports stars create the most fantastic collection of original artworks and we are extremely grateful for every contribution.
