THE BIG MOTH CHARITY AUCTION

Many of our Moths finally flutter away from their current homes on Friday 31 March 2017.  We will be holding a public auction on Saturday 6 May 2017 when many of these lovely sculptures will be sold to the highest bidder. The funds raised in the auction will go to support Hull and East Yorkshire charities through HEY SMILE Foundation, and the new Amy Johnson Arts & Engineering Awards which will support future creative projects in Hull and East Yorkshire.

The Auction will start at 2pm on Saturday 6 May and takes place at The Mercure Royal Hotel, Ferensway, Hull. It will be conducted by Hull’s leading auction house, Gilbert Baitson. There will be 25 Moths for Amy going under the hammer – have a look at the comprehensive auction catalogue here. 

The Royal Suite auction room will be open from 1pm, where we will have our full range of Moth for Amy memorabilia and merchandise on sale including The Big Book of Moths, Moth for Amy posters, badges and fridge magnets, as well as our ever-popular cardboard Gipsy Moth plane kits.
