As light emerges at the end of this long tunnel, we are holding an event in support of Somerville that we hope will be an enjoyable and exciting experience for us all: for the first time in twenty years, and the first time online, we are holding an auction.

You will have the opportunity to bid for a range of once in a lifetime offerings: from holiday homes in the UK and abroad to cultural and sporting experiences; from works by celebrated contemporary artists to masterclasses delivered by our world-class academics. All these wonderful offers will have the flexibility to be taken up in line with the Covid guidelines.

Alongside the start lots there is something there to suit all budgets, as well as a prize draw. In recognition of the challenging year they have had, there will be an additional special prize draw for our students with vouchers to spend at local businesses and Somerville Ball tickets on offer.

You might say, there will be LOTS to enjoy!

To view the catalogue and take part, visit https://givergy.uk/SomervilleCollege. The bidding opens on May 13th, leading up to an evening of virtual entertainment on Thursday 20th May at 7pm. The Principal will be hosting the event with some special VIP guests, who will be revealed in due course.

We hope you can join us!

‘I Want You For Peace And Paint’ (2012) by Blek le Rat is one of the artworks available at the auction. The artist is often called ‘the godfather of graffiti art’ and has been named as a key influence by Banksy
