How to bid in the Brockley Max fundraising auction

Brockley Max is holding a fundraising auction as part of the Festival Preview Night on Thursday 5th March at Jam Circus.

You can bid on the night and soak up the atmosphere at this popular local venue. We’ve even got a toe-tapping jazz and funk band, Alice In Grooveland, to entertain you.

If you can’t join us in person, we’ve also got some ingenious ways you can bid by text, email or Twitter – equivalents of the old-fashioned sealed bid.

The line-up of brilliant prizes includes vouchers for nights out at local restaurants, cocktail bars and the theatre, cookery classes for adults and children, home improvement vouchers, exercise classes and bike maintenance and even a super Uuni wood-fired pizza oven so you can enjoy a night out on the tiles. For the full prize list see our dedicated auction page.

The fundraising auction starts at 8.30pm. To place a bid at the event just raise your hand when the auctioneer calls out the lot you want to bid on. If yours is the highest bid, you’ll be given an envelope containing details of how to claim your prize.

Please note that Brockley Max can only accept payment by cash or cheque. There is a cash machine directly opposite Jam Circus for those who need last-minute cash top-ups!
