Art Auction 2023

A bunch of talented local artists have each produced a specially commissioned, framed poster for a band playing this year. We are exhibiting these beauties and then selling them by blind auction, with all money going to Reading Mencap. Thank you to all the artists for donating their artwork!

How to view and bid
  • The posters will be exhibited in St Laurence Church alongside the bands and the bar, all day (Saturday 6th May).
  • To bid, please enter your details onto one of the bidding sheets supplied at the Church. Please write clearly! Our AYL? volunteers will be on hand should you have any questions.
  • You may also bid by phone by texting your name, bid amount and band or artist name to 07495 544689 or emailing the details to fundraisingmanager@readingmencap.org.uk
  • You may bid on as many of the posters as you wish.
  • Each poster has a £30 reserve price.

This is your chance to get a one-off piece of AYL? Festival memorabilia, whilst also helping a fantastic cause.

Please note: All posters are A3 and are supplied in white frames. If you win and are unable to collect your poster from central Reading, you agree to pay the postage & packaging (£10) for the poster to be sent to you. While we will do our best to get the poster to you in one piece, AYL?/Reading Mencap will not be held responsible for any damage caused to the item whilst in transit. The winning bidders will be contacted the w/c Mon 22 May.
