Welcome to Anderson and Garland's news update and lockdown quiz.
After a Government enforced closure of two months, we are gearing up to open again very soon. Auctions to look forward to include: Town & County; Wine, Whisky, Port & Champagne; Pictures; An interesting dispersal sale, due to office relocation; and a bumper Fine Art sale, which will include the principal contents of three Northumberland and Durham Country Houses.
To ensure the safety of all our customers and staff, and in line with current guidelines, you will notice some changes to the way we operate, until restrictions are eased further.
