Christian McCann Auctions on the move

After a decade at 426 Burnley Street, Richmond, Christian McCann Auctions is on the move to new and larger premises.

Before the shift, however, the auction house must sell all its existing vendor stock – a monumental task that has become a full-time preoccupation for managing director Christian McCann.

“Our ‘Goodbye Burnley Street’ auction will be from noon Sunday August 4,” he says. “However, there are so many items we cannot possibly achieve it in one sale so this auction will be part one and comprise more than 750 items.”
