SOFAA 2017 in pictures

Biennial dinner brings auctioneers from out of town to London where rivalries are set aside in good cheerTemperatures are usually high in London when the Society of Fine Art Auctioneers and Valuers (SOFAA) hosts its biennial dinner and this year was no exception. The heat outside didn’t dissuade attendees from donning black tie and high heels to the event at the Royal Thames Yacht Club in Knightsbridge on June 30.

Thank goodness for the club’s terrace overlooking Hyde Park, where guests gathered to the distant strains of Phil Collins headlining nearby at the British Summer Time concert.

Woolley & Wallis, Forum Auctions, Lawrences of Crewkerne, Roseberys, Sworders and Mallams were there in force.

Some dealers managed to storm this auctioneer citadel, with speaker BADA president Victoria Borwick noting the “healthy rivalry” between the two camps.

There were tables for under-35s while, higher up on the experience ladder, Halls’ director, SOFAA stalwart and birthday boy Jeremy Lamond was given the honour of tossing the coin for the ‘heads or tails’ game, raising over £1000 for charity.
