About this event

Dates, address & more

Following an eight-week art trial in Worcester city centre throughout the summer, we invite you to join us for the grand finale as we auction our penguin sculptures, plus one special penguin chick.

Join Philip Serrell, our auctioneer, best known for appearing on TV shows such as Antiques Road Trip and Bargain Hunt, as we raise funds for the care provided by St Richard’s Hospice.

Hosted at DRPG in Hartlebury on Thursday 24th October 2024, you can join us on the night or watch the live-stream from the comfort of your sofa. Tickets to attend are limited.

The reserve for each penguin sculpture is expected to start from £3,000, so be prepared for some competitive bidding! Previously the elephant sculptures sold for between £5,500 and £36,000 each!

You must register in advance to be able to bid on the night. Registration details will be sent to you closer to the time, upon receipt of a Registration of Interest form, using the link below.
