Visit to Tennants Auction House at Leyburn

  • Thursday 30th January
  • Departure from Ripon Bus Station at 9-45am
  • Cost £38.00

Tennants Auction House is a family run business with a well known international reputation.

Our visit will include:

- coffee on arrival
- talk and video
- 2 course lunch, (please see menu included for choices)
- ’behind the scenes’ tour with a discussion on latest sales and exhibitions and a quiz
- tea and cake

We have arranged for a day out at Tennants in Leyburn as our post-Christmas visit. This is an exciting opportunity to see how the Auction House runs, as we are given a tour and talk and hopefully, a look at the next auction. It will include a 2 course meal and later a quiz followed by tea and cake! It costs a bit more than our usual trips but, we feel, worthwhile, plus we have been able to reduce the cost from its original price! So don’t miss this day out, a great way to forget the winter gloom. Also be aware that the closing date is 2 weeks before (instead of usual 1 week) .
