Following highly successful sales of the Wisden Cricketers' Almanack within our sporting auctions we now conduct two annual specialist sales of the Almanack every year, in April and September. Please see our sister website www.knightswisden.co.uk for full details.
We are based in North Norfolk but hold our auctions at the Premier Travel Inn, Leicester South West, a more central location, with easy motorway access. We have also had two auctions in Melbourne, Australia (1996 and 1998).
