The Children's Bookshow Art Auction Fundraiser 2019

Read more ...


The Children's Bookshow is auctioning a glorious array of artwork kindly donated by children's book illustrators from all over the world. We have original artwork from Quentin Blake, Axel Scheffler, Jo Empson, Satoshi Kitamura, Posy Simmonds and a beautiful limited edition print by Catherine Rayner to name but a few of the amazing artists that have donated their work.

Come and have a look!

The auction will run from 29th November - 8th December giving you the chance to buy beautiful and original Christmas presents!

All funds raised will go to The Children's Bookshow, a small charity that inspires children with a love of reading through an annual programme of theatre performances and in-school workshops with some of the best authors and illustrators from around the world. We provide children with a rich and exciting experience of literature and help to create the readers and writers of tomorrow.

To date we have raised £130,000 for this year's tour and now need to raise the last £5,000 before the end of 2019. So please do support our final fundraiser of the year!

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.
