This year's Art Auction
We have an exciting and eclectic mix of lots this year - something from this celebrated collection of artists will tempt all; from photographs, drawings, paintings and prints. We hope you will be inspired by this year's lots and help us in supporting Macmillan once again.
Macmillan and De’Longhi are joining forces again to host the seventh annual Macmillan De’Longhi Art Auction and Exhibition.
For the first time, all of the artworks will be on display in a public exhibition held over the weekend. Guests are free to enjoy the artwork and if any take your fancy you can bid on the silent auction pieces.
