Day Time Bedford Events 2022

W&H Peacock are delighted to welcome your group to join us for one of our Insight Days at the Bedford auction centre.

The plan for the day is to arrive for 11.30am where tea and coffee will be served in our auction gallery area. The visit will begin with a short introduction about W&H Peacock and its history in the town given by one of our auctioneers. There will be an opportunity for questions about auctions, how everything works, registrations etc.


Next, the group will be shown downstairs to view items on display, en-route to our Specialist Saleroom. In the saleroom there will be an opportunity to take part in a short valuation of specific items and members of the group will be able to view lots for the forthcoming auction. With an auctioneer, we will then discuss a few of the items and their estimated worth / story behind the item.

Finally, we head back upstairs to our auction centre café overlooking the salerooms, where you can relax while our team serve your choice of lunch. The day will finish around 2.30pm.

For groups looking to book an Insight Day, we require a minimum of 20 people in your party up to a maximum of 40. Larger groups looking to visit are welcome to split their visit over two days (subject to availability) or are welcomed to instead consider an Insight Evening where we are able to cater for up to 80 guests.

The Bedford auction centre boasts ample car parking onsite along with disabled access and lift to the gallery and Café area. If you are interested in booking a daytime event please contact our Specialist department via email on indicating your preferred date, name of group and expected numbers. The cost for 2022 daytime visits is £15 per head with lunchtime choices to be pre-ordered from our Insight Day menu.

We hope this gives you a sense of what is involved in an Insight Day at W&H Peacock and we look forward to welcoming you in due course.

In the meantime, you are welcome to visit the cafe, open 6 days a week, and to view our upcoming sales. Viewing days are every Friday for our weekly sales held on Saturdays and other specific days as advertised on the website for our specialist auctions.
