Welcome to the online bidding site for the Scientific Exploration Society's Charity Auction, in aid of the Ticuna people of Latin America and the Scientific Exploration Society. 

Here you can find information about the main lots for the auction, which will take place at our Canning House Event, with a presentation by Colonel John Blashford-Snell.

***This event is now SOLD OUT***

***To place a bid please bid online***

. Bidding will stay open throughout the live auction so you can continue to bid against others in the room.

If you would like to place a bid now, please do so, stating the maximum bid you would be prepared to go to if you are outbid during the live bid. We will then bid incrementally on your behalf to ensure you don't miss a bid, and to ensure you are the winning bidder!

Please feel free to browse the items, and submit a bid for anything you are interested in! 

For any queries please contact Ellie Mackay at or call 07814 802356

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.
