Please join us for our 75th Anniversary Auction, which is being hosted by celebrity auctioneer, Charles Hanson.

This auction commemorates the 75th anniversary of IWA’s first official meeting, which took place on this date back in 1946.

Lots generously donated by members and supporters so far include a limited-edition linocut print of Fradley Junction by celebrated waterways artist Eric Gaskell; “Know Your Waterways – Holidays on Inland Waterways” signed by IWA’s founder, Robert Aickman; and a weekend by the Caldon Canal including a guided walk of its history.

Celebrity supporters such as Sir David Suchet, Brian Blessed and Griff Rhys Jones have also donated items to the auction. These will be used to raise much needed funds for our work protecting and restoring the waterways of Britain.

Whether you are thinking of bidding or just tuning in for an entertaining evening, we hope you will be able to join us – albeit virtually – on the night!

Check back for more details.
