Terrence Higgins Trust's annual event, The Auction, in support of people living with HIV.

On Thursday 17 March 2016 one of our flagship events, The Auction, was once again held at Christie's.

The event is one of London’s most successful charity auctions and a night like no other. A champagne reception is followed by an evening of frantic bidding for world-renowned artwork, luxury travel lots and exciting celebrity experiences. Guests then move to Christie’s Great Room for entertainment and a standing supper.

The combined total for the event and the online auction was £401,258, more than ever before.

Watch our video from The Auction featuring interviews with Chief Executive Ian Green and Auctioneer Tom Best.

Video production kindly donated by Carve.

Thank you to all of the organisations and individuals [PDF] who donated to our luxury raffle 'The Box of Delights' which were sold on the night at The Auction.

Over its history the event has raised £3 million to make a difference to the lives of people living with and affected by HIV.
