Consultant auctioneer David Fletcher will be aboard when we hold a private viewing and auction at the auction rooms in the heart of Woburn on Thursday, October 15.
Our CEO Angela Foll has been learning the trade of an auctioneer so that she can put her new skills to the test at the event, hosted by Charles Ross Auctioneers & Valuers. All winning bids will go towards delivering more free counselling sessions for children and young people across the county.
Guests will be able to bring along an item for expert valuation by David Fletcher (below). David started his career in Hertfordshire, selling livestock and poultry, before moving on to antiques. For 11 years, he worked with a firm that was to become Bonhams – the London-based fine art auctioneers. David’s interest in the antiques trade was encouraged by watching the gentle and courteous style of Arthur Negus on the antiques quiz show Going for a Song. He was hooked and eventually wangled his way onto the rostrum. For David it was a dream come true. When he’s not valuing antiques on Flog It!, David is a consultant auctioneer to the Woburn auction house.
Relate Beds and Luton has 17 places left at the event which starts at 6.30pm when guests will be shown around the auction rooms at The Old Town Hall. If you’d like to come email: email@example.com
