The auction will include a whole range of amazing donated artwork from professional – local, national and celebrity artists, illustrators and photographers, and proceeds from the sale of the artwork will go directly to Chestnut Tree children’s hospice (80%) and Brighton Dome (20%).

Everyone can view the artworks on our special gallery showcase website at and we are holding several exhibitions in the lead up to the main five day exhibition at the Brighton Dome from 1 to 5 July 2016.

The satellite exhibitions are being held in Chichester, Worthing, Eastbourne and Hastings, on special days between 15 February and 23 June. Please see our website for full details on dates and times. There will be an exciting 10 day live auction, hosted on ebay, from 1 to 10 July.

If you are an artist, there is still time to donate a piece to our auction. The success of the auction is entirely down to the generosity of the artists. I never cease to be amazed!
