Bishop & Miller are thriving, with both new additions to the team and with an exciting new location in Norfolk to look forward to.

 

The Stowmarket based auction house, which only opened its doors in 2015, is creating a brand new 3,000sq.ft. auction gallery in Glandford, near Holt in Norfolk. Phase one of this exciting new gallery in Glandford is a dedicated auction gallery that will be host to a range of auctions, starting this year with The East Anglian auction, which is an art auction for everything to do with our wonderful counties and its rich artistic history, a Folk, Function & Frivolity auction, Maritime antiques, Whisky and Wine, Modern and Contemporary, Sartorial Elegance and a Collection from the South Coast, all this before the end of the year. With next year planning more than twenty-four auctions across the calendar.  Phase two of the auction gallery will see a further 1,000sq. ft of auction gallery space available right next door on the same site in Glandford which will further expand the capabilities of the team.

 

 

This purpose-built location is on a Business Park, close to Holt which attracts a number of visitors throughout the year. It will highlight the absolute best of what Norfolk and Suffolk have to offer. As part of this expansion, they have welcomed some new members to the Bishop & Miller Team. Firstly, Kevin Lines, (Previously of Key’s Auctioneers) joins the team as the new Pictures specialist, Steve Stockton (previously of Bonhams) is working as the Head of Business Development (primarily focussed in Norfolk but will cover Suffolk as part of the expansion) and they also welcome another ex-Bonhams alumni in the form of Prints and Multiples specialist Lucy Woodley and the final specialist that has joined the team is Lauren Gardner who is the new Jewellery specialist. Bishop & Miller have also welcomed three new administration staff to aid in this exciting new venture and to keep the behind the scenes running smoothly.

 

From what started 7 years ago with only four members of the team (two of which were part time), Bishop & Miller has now grown to twenty-one members of staff across both locations. Oliver Miller Managing Director said: “It is a really exciting time at the moment for us, we have a lot going on. The new site is going to be offering a vast range of auctions and to be in a brand-new building is wonderful, we can put our own stamp on it. We have a busy September – Christmas auction calendar at both our Suffolk and Norfolk locations so there really is lots to look forward to.”

 

With the addition of the Glandford gallery and a busy auction schedule in Stowmarket, the world of Bishop and Miller Auctioneers & Valuers is an exciting one and really one to watch!
