Event Details

It’s all been building up to this. The grand finale of Rocket Round Leicester will see our stellar fleet of giant Rocket sculptures auctioned off to raise vital funds for LOROS Hospice on Wednesday 13th October 2021.

With thousands of people having visited and explored the city as part of Rocket Round Leicester this summer, the auction will give you the opportunity to be a part of the legacy that the trail leaves behind, as well as the chance to actually take home one of our amazing giant Rocket sculptures.

Painted with such care by incredibly talented artists both locally and all over the UK, every single one of our giant rockets would make a beautiful addition to any garden, foyer, or open space. The trail may be finished, but their popularity will live on, creating a talking point for anyone that sees them for years to come.

Bidding online

We've teamed up with Bid Path to allow anyone to register and bid online from the comfort of your own home. The Auction will be live streamed so you won’t miss a beat and still get to follow all the action and excitement on the night. Pre-bidding is available online so make sure to get yourself registered and place your bids in plenty of time.

In placing a bid you will not only be in with a chance of owning a piece of Leicester’s art history, but crucially funding care for the more than 2,500 terminally-ill adult patients that LOROS Hospice supports each year.

Watch the Auction live

The live stream will start around 7pm. Watch online on our youtube and facebook pages.
