Take part in the Music Appeal Auction - Saturday 14th January 2017

We are holding a Music Pavilion fundraising auction during the Winter Ball on Saturday 14th January 2017 and have some really fantastic auction lots.  To enable as many people as possible to have the opportunity to bid on these wonderful lots, we are opening the auction up to all the Ewell Castle School community, regardless of whether or not you are attending the Ball. 

To generate a little bit of excitement about the lots, we are announcing one auction lot a day for the next couple of weeks and are borrowing the theme of "The 12 Days of Christmas" as a way to add a little bit of Christmas fun and topicality to the auction lot countdown. If you are interested in bidding for one of the auction lots, you will need to email events@ewellcastle.co.uk with the following information, no later than midday on Monday 9th January 2017.  We will have a team co-ordinating the auction on the night of the Ball and they will ensure that all bids (silent in advance and on the night) are managed professionally, so everyone has the same chance of securing the auction lot/s of their choice.  Auction winners will be notified by the 20th January 2017.  Please note that if you are interested in bidding for more than one lot, we require a separate email for each individual lot that you wish to bid for with the following information.  Each auction lot has a starting/reserve bid, the lot will be awarded to the person who places/offers the highest bid for that lot.

  • Your name, contact email address and contact telephone number
  • The lot number of the item you are bidding for
  • The lot name of the item you are bidding for
  • The maximum amount that you are willing to go up to (i.e. that you are willing to spend) on the auction lot of your choice
