Postal Ticket Auction, closing Friday, 10thMay 2024



Bids can be submitted by post or email to the address below (where equal bids are submitted, the first received will take preference). Please ensure that you give us your card payment details or blank cheque (with an appropriate 'not to exceed £...' endorcement) with your bids. Due to social distancing rules, we will be unable to have several staff working together at the office to take the payments and dispatch the tickets after the sale closes, as we would in normal times. To avoid interupting and delaying the one staff member who will be sending out the tickets to the successful bidders after the auction, please make sure that we have your payment details before the sale closes. Bidding will be in the following steps:

£1 up to £10
£2 up to £30
£5 up to £100

£10 up to £500
£20 thereafter

The successful bidder will pay one step above the next highest bid, or the minimum price in the absence of other bids. A buyer's premium of 15% + VAT will apply to all bids, total 18%.
