Frequently Asked Questions

Which lighthouses are being sold at auction?

There will be 50 lighthouse sculptures and 8 little lighthouse sculptures to bid for during the evening.

Where and when can I view the lighthouses?

People interested in bidding on a lighthouse are encouraged to come along to the Farewell Weekend event to see the artwork up-close.

What are the lighthouses made of and how heavy are they?

The lighthouses are made of fire-resistant fibreglass. Each lighthouse is approximately 2.5m tall, 75cm wide at the base, and weigh approximately 50kg.
Each lighthouse is sold as seen.

What is the guide price?

While it is difficult to assess the likely amount that any sculpture may sell for, we believe a bid in excess of £3,000 should secure a sculpture. However, prices realised could be higher and we expect many sculptures to sell for considerably more.
