Under the hammer for Hospice: Big Splash auction tickets now available

Tickets for the Big Splash auction are now available.

The auction is in aid of Hospice Isle of Man and will be held at the Villa Marina on Wednesday October 12 when bids will be invited for the individually designed dolphin sculptures that formed the Big Splash island-wide public art trail over the summer.

Hospice is encouraging local businesses and the general public to lend their support by attending the auction, tickets for which are free but places must be booked in advance online to gain entry and to register to bid.

Hospice Isle of Man CEO Anne Mills said: ‘The auction is our final Big Splash event. It’s not only going to be an opportunity to bid for these beautifully decorated sculptures but also to bid a fond farewell to our magnificent dolphins that have showcased some truly incredible artistic talent, graced the Manx countryside, delighted so many people of all generations throughout the summer and attracted such generous support for the work of Hospice Isle of Man.’

The Big Splash is a public art project featuring individually designed dolphin sculptures installed at landmark sites around the island. The project aims to raise funds towards the £5million Hospice needs annually to continue providing its range of end-of-life and palliative care services, delivered at no cost.
