Staff at Tiverton Museum are getting ready for an exciting auction evening on Friday 18th November. Twenty of the All Aboard sculptures of the Tivvy Bumper steam engine that were around the town over the summer, are being auctioned at a special event at Tiverton Museum.

The auction is an open event, no prior booking required. The museum is taking commission bids for people who are unable to attend the auction but would like to put in a bid. The guide price for each sculpture is around £150. The proceeds from the auction will go to Tiverton Museum, and a donation will be made to the Tiverton Market Drop In Centre.

One of the sculptures, the ‘Fiery Fox’ which was on display outside Phoenix House will not be auctioned, but is the prize in a raffle which will be drawn on the same night. Tickets are only £1 and are available from the museum.
