Big Heart - Calling All Art Lovers!

Artists and Celebrities are creating artwork in support of Longfield’s art for health community programme. Now you have the chance to bid for your own piece of art through the Big Heart Secret Art Auction!

The Big Heart art auction is returning for a second year to raise vital funds to support the programme. Last year more than 100 specially-commissioned pictures were sent to Longfield and sold on eBay in a secret auction! This year even more artists and celebrities are taking part...

To add some excitement and to help raise more funds the individual artist's identity will remain a secret until after the auction has finished! Each piece of art is signed on the back by the artist, so that their identity remains secret until the end of the auction. 

If you are an artist, and would like to submit a piece follow this link to request a Big Heart pack.

The Big Heart Auction will open on-line on eBay on Tuesday 22nd November till Thursday 1st December. You can keep up to date with the latest news and see the artwork on Instagram, twitter  and facebook. To receive an email notification when the exhibitions and auction goes live, email
