 Tuesday 13th April 2.00pm – 5.00pm 
Wednesday 14th April from 9.00am – 5.00pm 
(Viewing will be subject to us being able to open to the public on 12th April as is the current government aim)

At viewing – we will require ALL visitors to wear a face covering and gloves (gloves can be provided) and for each person (or at least one member of a household) to sign into the building for Track and Trace purposes. If you are unable to comply with this, we will not be able to allow you to view in person.

Condition reports are available on request up until 2pm on Wednesday 14th April via email: fineart@mccartneys.co.uk
Condition report requests after this time may not be processed in time for the Auction.

Lots from previous Auctions
Providing we are able to open on Monday 12th April, we will also be able to arrange collection of Lots from previous Auctions from Tuesday 20th April. (Although we will hopefully be open on 12th, as we have an Auction that week we will be unable to facilitate many collections before 20th – if collections are urgent please contact the office to discuss – but note that there will be no members of the public allowed into the building on the day of the Auction itself)
Updates will be made to our Website & Facebook page closer to the time so please keep an eye on these.
We would like to thank all of our customers for your understanding and continued support during this time.
