The Farmer’s Charity Auction

Saturday 20th November, 6.00pm - Late
Tickets £10.00
(includes bidding paddle and a hearty homemade supper)

About the Auction: 

Following The Farmer’s Winter Fair, we’ll be hosting our first in-person auction at the inn with experienced local auctioneer, John Townsend. Expect minor beauties, pictures we can't find space for, surplus ceramics, experiences money cannot (usually) buy and other locally made or produced delights. All lots sold support our renovation programme.

Tickets include a hearty home-made supper and your bidding paddle. A fun social occassion, we also expect some furious bidding for our star lots so come prepared. 

To join us, we ask that you book in advance here to help us manage numbers. 

Got something you’d like to sell? 
If you've something you'd like us to auction on your behalf, we take a 30% commission and handle all the rest for you. Of course, donations to support our renovation programme are also very welcome too. Get in touch with Project Manager Emma Sumner for more information (emma@grizedale.org).
