andy hodgson events

Andy has hosted numerous high profile events. From award ceremonies, product launches, sportsman dinners to auctioneer for several of the worlds leaders.

A dinner and celebrity auction was held at the Emirates Stadium and Andy raised more than £100,000 as Auctioneer as guests paid £500 a head for a seat for a Olympic dinner. Among the guests were Ex Prime Minister Tony Blair, Ed Milliband, Eddie Izzard, Jo Brand, Sam Allardyce, Nancy Dell'Olio, Peter Reid, Clarke Carlisle, Paul Gambuccini, Heather Small and a host of celebrities.

The chance to own a handwritten speech by Tony Blair went under the hammer for £36,000 to a mystery bidder. A specially commissioned drawing by the sculptor Antony Gormley pushed up the bidding at £20,000 and an Alex Ferguson (Man Utd) handwritten battle plan for the Champions League final V Barcelona reached over £10k.

Andy has also hosted the Burnley Football Club End of Season awards, a club that's close to his heart. You can view highlights of this evening below


Andy is outstanding in his field. I’ve worked alongside him many times and booked him for events myself. His skills as compere and auctioneer always delight audiences and raise money. At one particular event for ‘Labour in Sport’ he helped raise over £600k.

Barry Kilby | Burnley Football Club (Ex-Chairman)

Andy is an excellent MC or compere. He is able to smoothly run your event with skill, professionalism and off the cuff wit. Andy's overall approach always guarantees an enjoyable experience for all. As an auctioneer he is outstanding. Always beating the reserve price and encouraging bids that result in exceeding expectations. You will not find anybody better.

Dave Edmundson | The Football League

Andy is a genius. He’s the only man I know that can rewrap a new shirt and not have any pins left over. He’s also a great compere!.
