Our venue for the Art 4 Macmillan auction and dinner is the beautifully elegant Rockbeare Manor. Our 120 exclusive ticket holders will be invited to register for the art auction and view the 25 carefully selected pieces while taking in the splendour of the house itself. Rockbeare Manor is Grade I Listed, and has been a private residence hidden from public gaze since it was constructed in the mid 18th Century. It has only very recently opened its doors for the most special of events.
Our 25 auction pieces will be displayed in various locations within the house for viewing. Our guests will then be invited to take their seats for a sumptuous three course dinner followed by the auction. The whole evening will be lead by our host, well known West Country TV and radio personality Judi Spiers, and the auction will be conducted by TV auctioneer Graham Barton, the man with the stripey jacket! The professional expertise of Lawrences Auctioners will further add to the enjoyment.
Ticket holders are also invited to attend the exclusive preview event at St Stephen’s Church, High Street, Exeter on the evening of Thursday 28th September 2017. You can find out more about this here.
Our compére for the evening will be Judi Spiers, one of the West Country’s most popular and highly respected broadcasters. Renowned for her sharp wit and naturally engaging personality, Judi will guide you through the evening with her warmth and great sense of humour.
Our auctioneer for the evening will be Graham Barton. You might be familiar with Graham and his trademark striped jackets from television programmes such as BBC One’s ‘Homes under the Hammer’. Graham is a Professional Property Auctioneer here in Devon with vast experience of charity auction events.
