Come and spend an afternoon with Charlie Ross at RHS Garden Rosemoor, where he will talk about his extraordinary life and career.

Having run his own auction house in Woburn, England for 25 years Charlie has spent the last few years travelling the world conducting many high-profile and high-value auctions. He is the resident auctioneer for Gooding and Company, the leading American vintage automobile auctioneers, who hold annual sales in Pebble Beach (California), Scottsdale (Arizona) and Amelia Island (Florida).

His well-known charity auctions have raised many millions of pounds for a large number of charities. Highlights have included fundraising auctions for Great Ormond St Hospital, The Elton John Aids Foundation, Caudwell Children, NSPCC, The Tim Henman Foundation, the Ubuntu Foundation, DEBRA, The Rainbow Trust and The Shooting Star Hospice for Children.

Charlie is also regularly seen on a number of BBC television programmes including the Antiques Road TripCelebrity Antiques Road Trip and Bargain Hunt, for which he is one of the presenters.

Following his talk, there will be the opportunity to ask Charlie any questions during a Q&A session, and then a chance to have a chat with him as he does some networking with our visitors. 

Please note: This event is a part of our Vintage Weekend.
