Kevin Spacey outbid in the world's glitziest school auction

Kevin Spacey outbid in the world's glitziest school auction

It's not the sort of thing you'd usually expect to see going under the hammer at a school fundraising auction.

But when Kevin Spacey learned Laurence Olivier's personal monogrammed leather script binder was to be sold at a fundraiser at an exclusive London school, he felt compelled to bid.

Hollywood star Kevin put in an offer of £2,000 from America, but the binder finally went to a parent who paid £8,000. 

The item was one of several desirable lots at the event, organised by The Harrodian School in London's Barnes – which is attended by several A-list offspring.

Also up for grabs was a day of cricket coaching with Imran Khan, donated by him and former wife Jemima, and a luxury holiday aboard a 62ft yacht in the Caribbean.
