Fancy pulling a pint, being a radio weather announcer or having a cookery master class in your own home?
These are just some of the quirky lots on offer at a fund raising auction being staged by ADeC later this month.
TV auctioneer David Palmer - known for his natty waistcoats on programmes such as Flog It! and Cash in the Attic - will be wielding his gavel at the event held at The Maltings in Ely.
The auction takes place during a night of award-winning and nominated short films, on Sunday November 17, starting at 8pm.
There are more than 30 items on offer, from pulling your own pint (plus a round of drinks for you and your friends) at Ely’s micro-pub the Liberty Belle, a pair of cinema tickets every month for a year, and the chance to be your chance to be a weather girl or boy on Star Radio.
