The art sale with a twist is back!

The SECRET ART SALE is now in its fifth year. Royal Academicians, local artists, art students and many others, kindly donate work but, we don't reveal the artist name until the art is bought!

UPDATE 11:13am: Sales are now coming through on Jumblebee’s website for our Secret Art Sale. Please keep trying and refreshing. We’re sorry some pages are still not loading for people. Thank you for your patience as we try our charity fundraiser for the first time online. We’re doing everything we can to work with our provider to fully fix the website. Please keep trying as the sale is now live.

---

We’re sorry the Secret Art Sales website page has currently crashed. The provider’s engineers are doing everything they can to fix it and will let us know as soon as it’s resolved. No art is currently being sold and we will update our communication channels as soon as the site is live again.

We can only apologise for the frustration this causes. The provider hasn’t seen this demand in years, so please keep refreshing and thank you for your interest in our sale! There are still 315 pieces waiting for you…!

The Secret Art Sale will look a little different this year and due to Covid-19 we sadly won't be able to hold our popular exhibition. The good news is that we will be running it online so you can get your hands on the artworks from wherever you are. We have already received amazing works by some well-known people (including Prof. Norman Ackroyd CBE RA, James Butler RA MBE, sculptor Alison Wilding RA, Chris Wilkinson OBE RA, Ian Ritchie CBE RA, Piers Gough CBE RA, Nigel Hall RA, Frank Bowling OBE RA, Peter Randall-Page RA, Robert E. Wells NEAC RBA, Dr. Janette Kerr RSA HON PPRWA, Anne Swankie, wildlife filmmaker Gordon Buchanan, illustrators Axel Scheffler and Clare Mackie, cartoonists Louis Hellman MBE and Nick Baker, poet and librettist David Harsent and Deborah Meaden) so we can tell it will be yet another great show. All the works will be listed anonymously and each will be sold at a price of £40 on a first come, first serve basis*. This enables buyers to purchase works of art they like at an affordable price, whilst offering them the chance of owning work by a renowned artist or celebrity. Only when buyers receive their purchase will the name of the artist be revealed!

Last year 376 works were kindly donated by a wide range of people. They were viewed by thousands, and almost all sold. We took over £19,000 – every penny of the profits have supported our charitable nature and heritage conservation work in the local area.
