You might find a real bargain – from ceramics to furniture, military collectables to toys and models, artwork to classic cars, there’s something for all interests. There’s a café on site too so you can combine bidding with a pot of tea and a slice of something nice or a light lunch.
Cost: Free to watch, but we can’t guess how much you might spend if you choose to bid!

NGS Open Garden, Holehird. Sunday 25th March
Run by volunteers with the aim of promoting knowledge of plants particularly suited to Lakeland conditions, Holehird is also one of the best labelled gardens in the UK. It’s home to national collections of astilbe, daboecia, polystichum (ferns) and meconopsis. And it’s set up on the fellside with stunning views over Lake Windermere. The walled garden gives protection to mixed borders whilst alpine houses display an always colourful array of tiny gems. The banks of daffodils are also a sight to behold in Spring.
Cost: Entry by donation
We’re looking forward to welcoming you this March!
