Forthcoming Sales & Catalogues  Auction Reports 

COVID-19 Update, April Auction Postponed
It is with regret that due to the ongoing situation regarding the COVID-19 crisis, we will be introducing the following measures for the safety of our Clients and Staff at the Portcullis Auction Room.
All Fine Art, Antique & Collectables Auctions are to be postponed until further notice, we will keep this under constant review and will inform you when our monthly Auctions will recommence. Please keep an eye on our Website, Facebook page and Newspaper adverts, we will also be sending an email to all clients on our mailing list.
We will not be taking any entries for Auctions at this time and payment and collection of items from previous Auctions should be made by appointment only. Please be prepared to wait outside the Saleroom if you have not made an appointment as there may be others collecting at that time.
During this time, all house visits for evaluation of chattels are also to be postponed until further notice.
We would like to wish all of our clients the very best during this difficult period and we would like to thank you for your understanding and continued support.


Important Notice
Following a review of our online platforms, please note that Portcullis Auction Room has made the decision to trial the easyLiveAuction.com as an alternative online bidding option for our customers from 20th June 2019.
We will be trialling this platform for 6 months and in this time it will be replacing UKAuctioneers – so our last sale with UKAuctioneers will be 16th May 2019.
During this time we will continue to use the-saleroom.com.
We would like to thank all of our customers in advance for your patience whilst we implement this new system at The Portcullis Auction Room.
