Musical Instrument Auction
A new collaboration with the Alresford Music Festival which has 3,000 attendees. We will be erecting a 9m by 6m marquee at the festival. The plan is that sellers promote their instruments on our web site now, deliver them on their way into the festival, viewing during the afternoon and an auction in the late afternoon/early evening.
We are holding a Musical Instrument Auction at the Alresford Music Festival on Saturday 11th June. We are looking for sellers who want to offer their surplus musical instruments to the 3,000 potential buyers attending the festival! That’s a pretty high number of potential buyers for an auction.
Our fifth cycle auction takes place before the general auction in the garden. Cycles and related items are delivered at 8am, Viewing is from 10:30 and the auction is at noon.
Do you have any cycles to sell? Do you know anyone who has a cycle they should sell? Now is the time to give them a clean, take a photo and post them on the appropriate page of our web site to attract buyers to the auction. The list is in the Cycles menu on our web site. There have been nearly a 1,000 visitors to our Cycling page in the last 90 days. They want to see what you have to sell.
Buyers can expect 100-150 lots on the day. In the past they have ranged from early 1900s bikes, all the way to modern bikes which have never been used! We have sold respected small volume English frame makers, good bikes from Raleigh, Dawes, Claud Butler and modern American and Continental makers. Check out the Cycling Archives to see what has been sold previously.
Normal charges: £1 per lot submitted for sale, 12.5% commission for buyers and sellers and 50p to view/bid.
Yes, inside the festival at Arlebury Park. With 3,000 people attending the festival and a significant percentage of them who play musical instruments, we think they will want to sell some and buy some.
We are putting up a large marquee for the day. We will be receiving instruments in the morning and lotting them up. Viewing at lunchtime and the early afternoon. The auction will be in sections (guitars, woodwind, brass etc.) in the late afternoon and early evening.
If you have or know someone who has a musical instrument to sell, please upload photos and descriptions to the Musical Instrument section pages on our site now, to attract buyers. The auction will be promoted on the Alresford Music Festival web site and in their email shots to a few thousand people.
Charges: £2 per lot submitted for sale and 12.5% commission for buyers and sellers. No charge for viewing/bidding.
Please look at the advice for those unable to attend as buyers or sellers on the Musical Instruments web page. We will do our best to get your instrument in the auction and accept your commission bids.
On Saturday 10th June 2016 we are holding our second specialist musical instrument auction at the Alresford Music Festival. You can find more details on our Musical Instrument Auction page. We are promoting it well in advance to give buyers and sellers the best opportunity to see and sell their instruments and related items.
It is a requirement for submitting lots to this auction that the sellers upload descriptions and photographs to the web site. It’s a simple and free process.
Lots have to be delivered on the morning of the auction and removed if unsold in the afternoon unless you have reached a prior arrangement with us. Again please see the detailed terms and conditions on the Musical Instrument Auction page.
We will NOT be accepting pianos: grand, baby or upright; Hammond organs or any other large and heavy instrument for sale from the marquee. However we are willing to sell them with photographs and honest descriptions. Please call to discuss.
