Preparations are being made at Belfast City Hall for an exhibition of art by a host of celebrities from the worlds of sport, art and entertainment.

Works by the likes of Bono, Jude Law, Joan Rivers and Rio Ferdinand go on show there from Monday for five days only, after which they will be auctioned off in aid of local charity WAVE.

Popular Ulster actor James Nesbitt is the driving force behind the Art WAVE Celebrity Auction which will raise funds to help the charity use the arts as effective therapy for those traumatised as a result of the Troubles.

Nesbitt, WAVE's patron, has enlisted the help of celebrity friends such as Robbie Williams, Neil Morrisey, Bill Wyman and Chris Evans, who are among those who have created pieces of art for the auction.
