Pictures Reimagined is part of 'Night Under The Stars', The Passage's annual fundraising concert. Excerpts from Pictures at an Exhibition will be performed at this year's concert, which takes place at Southbank Centre's Royal Festival Hall on Tuesday 7 November.
This auction will be available until midday on Monday 6 November when online bidding will close. Bidding will re-open at the Night Under The Stars post-concert reception on Tuesday 7 November, concluding at 22:30. If you are unable to attend the reception you can still give yourself a good chance of winning by placing a proxy or maximum bid on this page. We will then carry your bid over to the live silent auction and continue bidding on your behalf up to your maximum.Close.
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.
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.
