Preparing for the All Aboard! auction

Now that the All Aboard! sculpture trail has come to an end, we are getting ready to auction the sculptures at a special event at at Tiverton Museum on Friday 18th November at 7:30pm. The proceeds from the auction will go to Tiverton Museum and a donation will be made to the Market Drop In Centre. The auction is an open event, no prior booking required. The museum is taking commission bids if you are unable to attend the auction but would like to put in a bid. Please email Pippa on curator04@tivertonmuseum.org.uk for a copy of the commission bid form. The reserve price for each sculpture is £150. 

The auction catalogue can be viewed here.

One of the 20 sculptures, the ‘Fiery Fox’  will not be auctioned, but is the prize in a raffle which will be drawn on the same night. The sculpture features characters from the Peter’s Railway books who sponsored it. The books are for children who love railways and engineering. The author, Christopher Vine, has generously donated some signed books which will also be part of the raffle prize. The raffle tickets are now on sale at Tiverton Museum for just £1 !!!
