The Big Art Secret, 2012

Towner and St Wilfrid’s Hospice staged The Big Art Secret 2, a fundraising effort to support the local hospice and Towner.

Grayson Perry, Graham Norton, David Cameron, George Osborne and Andrew Marr were some of the top names who anonymously contributed postcard-sized works of art for an online auction. 

Postcard-sized art was exhibited at Towner for two weeks. All the artworks were available to buy on eBay from just 99p from 14 to 23 March. Each piece of art work was labelled with a QR code alongside so that visitors could place bids from their phones or tablets, at the exhibition or from home.


ebay is buyers’ first point of contact to collect their purchases  – delivery options are orchestrated by ebay. If buyers have paid for delivery and not indicated through ebay that they wish to collect in person, the item will be posted.

For all who have indicated through ebay that they wish to collect their purchases. Collection is at St Wilfrid’s reception between 4 – 11 April.
