The Derby Ram Trail has been creating a buzz across the city since it launched at the end of May. Now, with all the excitement it has created you could have the opportunity to own your very own unique work of art.
With just over six weeks to go, serious bidders are invited to register their interest for the end of trail auction, taking place in the prestigious Italian Mill in the newly opened Museum of Making.
The event will be hosted by TV Personality and Auctioneer Charles Hanson and will also be live streamed so everyone can join in the fun online too. So, if you have really enjoyed the colourful spectacle and would really like to have a permanent reminder of this wonderful event you can register your interest here.
Tony Butler, Executive Director at Derby Museums said: ‘Through the opening of the Museum of Making and launch of the Derby Ram Trail, we have really enjoyed bringing people back into the city and brightening up our city’s streets with these fabulous works of art. It will be great to see who is going to bid on the night and take these fantastic pieces of art back to their homes, workplaces and local communities.
“If you do decide to take the plunge at the auction, not only will you end up with a fantastic work of art, you will also be supporting the work of Derby Museums as proceeds raised through the auction will be part of the Endowment, supporting the work we do across all our sites.”
The Derby Ram Trail Auction is kindly supported by Penguin PR.
Derby Museums will also be hosting a Farewell RamUnion Weekend from 3-5 September with an opportunity for members of the public to come and see all the rams together for one last time before they ram-pede off to auction. Tickets for this event have just been released and are expected to sell quickly.
