Photos of Jeremy Irons hosting the auction at the Sunflower Jam: Superjam 2011

Here are a few photos of Jeremy Irons hosting the auction at the Sunflower Jam: Superjam 2011, on July 8, 2011, at the Royal Albert Hall. I will try to find some others without the massive, ugly watermarks. For now, we have these. It looks like Jeremy’s prepping to get back to playing the pope; he’s beard-free once again. Enjoy!

    HRH The Prince of Wales took to the Royal Albert Hall stage on Friday evening when he met up with rock legends from the UK and USA to help raise awareness for a newly formed charity known as The Sunflower Jam.

    On arrival at the Royal Albert Hall, The Prince of Wales was met by Jacky Paice, founder of the Sunflower Jam and also Jeremy Irons who was the Master of Ceremonies for the event. They then escorted him to the main auditorium where he watched Deep Purple sound check “Smoke on the Water”. The Prince met with Deep Purple on stage along with Bill Bailey, who showed the Prince of Wales his 6 arm guitar and played him a tune on the cow bells.

    The Prince then attended a meet and greet prior to the main concert. Those in attendance included Deep Purple (Ian Paice, Ian Gillan, Don Airey, Steve Morse and back for one night only Jon Lord) Joe Bonamassa, Rick Wakeman, Newton Faulkner, and BAFTA actor Jeremy Irons.

    During a reception an intimate gathering of VIP guests were also introduced to The Prince prior to the main Sunflower Jam Concert

    The Sunflower Jam is a musical event which was developed into a charity earlier this year. The charity raises money for people who will benefit from the positive aspects that complementary therapies have to offer. The event was originally inspired by the children being treated in the University College London Hospital cancer ward, as they responded so positively to the complementary therapies offered there to help them cope with the negative side effects of their cancer treatments.

    In 2006 Jacky Paice (wife of Deep Purple band member Ian Paice) created the first ever Sunflower Jam which brings together people with a passion for music, both in the audience and on stage. This year the auction raised in excess of £150k for the Sunflower Jam Charity and included a lithograph donated from the Prince of Wales and a chance to stay at Jeremy Irons Castle in Skinereen, Southern Ireland.

    In the past monies have gone to The Sam Buxton Sunflower Healing Trust, the Holistic Cancer Support and Research Fund.
