Rocket Round Leicester Auction


Rocket Round Leicester Auction

Already got your eyes on the incredible giant Rocket sculptures before the Rocket Round Leicester trail even begins on 19 July? We're not surprised, they really have blown us away too!

That's why we're delighted to share that you could take home one of the 40 stellar Rocket sculptures following the spectacular 10-week trail at the Rocket Round Leicester auction. Yep, you could keep an incredible 8ft Rocket in your home, garden or workplace forever!

All 40 of the stellar Rocket sculptures will be auctioned on Wednesday 13 October to raise all-important funds for event organisers, LOROS Hospice.

Hosted at the National Space Centre by auctioneer Charles Hanson (Bargain Hunt, Flog it!, Antiques Road Trip), you can join on the night and be a part of the bidding action. With limited tickets available for the live event, you can also join the fun via a livestream and bid online.

The reserve for each Rocket sculpture is expected to start from £3,000, so be prepared for some competitive bidding!

Funds raised at auction will fund the vitally needed LOROS Hospice patient care. They need to raise in excess of £6 million from voluntary income each year to continue their services and care for over 2,500 terminally ill people each year.

Event tickets are limited and priced at £20 each. Register your interest to be in the room at the LIVE auction here and a member of the team will be in touch.
