Derby Museums has said that only a few tickets remain for an event that will see the rams from the Derby Ram Trail auctioned off.

After wowing visitors all summer, the 30 5ft-tall rams are set to be auctioned off to raise money for the museum.

They will be sold off by auctioneer Charles Hanson at the sale, which will take place at the Museum of Making on Thursday.

Only a few tickets remain – and Derby Museums has said it is selling them off at a special price of just £10.

All proceeds from the auction will be doubled with match funding from the National Lottery Heritage Fund and donated to Derby Museums’ Endowment.

Tony Butler, executive director at Derby Museums, said: “The trail has made such a difference in the city this summer, encouraging people back into the city to support local businesses in post-Covid recovery.

“People have really loved the trail and we are delighted to be able to offer the last tickets at this special price to enable more people to be a part of the auction on what is set to be a brilliant night and we hope people will be inspired to make one their own by bidding at the auction.

“The proceeds from the auction will support Derby Museums Endowment and help to secure our future so we can continue to keep our museums free to inspire the generations of the future.”

The Derby Ram Trail Auction is being sponsored by Penguin PR.

Director Simon Burch said: “We hope people will not miss the chance to come to this unique auction event and dig deep to bid on a ram and support Derby Museums.”

The auction catalogue is now live and can be viewed here.
