About Our Auction
Aldeburgh's carnival theme this year is "A Tropical Paradise"!
Take a bid to win one of the fantastic lots on offer this year.
Your generosity allows us to support other local charities and organisations every year with donations from the proceeds, each year we give something back to the community.
We are so fortunate to be supported by a wealth of local businesses and organisations, who provide us with incredible, diverse lots to suit all tastes. Goods, gifts, activities, experiences and much more besides.
Funds raised by this auction are ploughed back into arranging the next Aldeburgh Carnival, which costs upwards of £45,000 per year to organise.

In order to bid, you just need to set up an account, and that'll allow you to bid on multiple items without the need to register every time. If you already have an account - welcome back.
Following the successful trial last year, the online bidding will be open later into Carnival weekend, ending on Sunday 20th August 2023 at 2p.m. The auction then transfers to a short Live Event window on Sunday afternoon at the Silent Auction site near the Moot Hall, to allow in-person bids up until 3p.m. on the day.
We very much encourage you to bid online here though.
Please tell the people that matter to you about our Silent Auction. The money raised goes a long way towards heading off the rising costs of Aldeburgh Carnival and supporting local charities and organisations. Without you and your participation, it wouldn't happen.
About Aldeburgh Olde Marine Regatta and Carnival
The official page for Aldeburgh Carnival - the best seaside carnival in Suffolk (we think so anyway). Our Silent Auction raises vital funds for the Carnival, which frequently costs over £45,000 a year to organise, plus donations made back to local organisations and worthwhile Aldeburgh causes. We are indebted to the many local businesses and individuals who donate amazing lots year on year.
Help support the winner of Family Tourism Event of the Year 2018, awarded by East Anglian Daily Times and Eastern Daily Press. We still need you to make it happen.
Live Event Information
Our transition to a live event will start at 2pm on Sunday 20th August, should you like to review the final online bids and make another bid in person at the Silent Auction site on Moot Green. The live event window will end around 3pm, and at our discretion.
The Auction site on Moot Green will be updated with all current online bids throughout the two days.
