The Courtyard Christmas Appeal 2017

Read more ...


The Courtyard is Herefordshire’s Centre for the Arts, offering amazing cultural experiences for everyone.

We are the main community arts hub regionally, delivering a huge range of educational and inspirational projects, for example, each week, over 350 young people attend one of our Youth Theatre groups, either at The Courtyard or one of our satellite groups at Kington and Bromyard. Our Creative Ageing team has worked with over 60% of Herefordshire care homes in the last few years to deliver dementia-friendly arts activities. Our work has a significant and very positive impact on the lives of people living in our rural county, not just at the venue itself.

We urgently need your help to protect and develop this work further, after a major reduction in regular funding in 2016.

Please bid generously on these wonderful lots donated by our kind business supporters and let you friends know about the auction too!

The majority of lots are available to collect directly from The Courtyard straight after the auction ends so would make ideal Christmas gifts.

When bidding on an auction item, if you enter more than the minimum increment for an item then your bid will be used for proxy bidding. This is how it works:
1. You enter the absolute maximum that you are willing to bid for an item.
2. jumblebee places a bid on your behalf, using the minimum amount required to make you the highest bidder, i.e. current bid price plus bid increment OR the reserve price, if there is one and it can be covered by your proxy bid.
3. jumblebee continues to bid on your behalf, whenever you are outbid by another member's bid, until your maximum bid is exceeded or the auction is won.
4. jumblebee will notify you by email if your maximum bid is outbid by another member and provided the auction is still running, you will then have a chance to enter a new maximum bid if you wish.
For example:
The current bid on an auction item is £100. The minimum increment is £10. You enter a bid of £150 (your maximum bid).
Using your bid, but increasing only by the minimum increment, jumblebee sets the current bid to £110.
Another person bids £130 but they are immediately outbid by jumblebee bidding on your behalf and the current bid goes up to £140.
The auction finishes and you have won the auction item at a price of £140.
