ASHBOURNE’S antiques lovers will be able to take up a rare opportunity to raid their attics and bring along their family heirlooms, household treasures and car boot bargains for inspection by the experts of BBC’s Antiques Roadshow.
The popular Sunday evening programme will be filming for its 37th series in The Roundhouse, Derby on Sunday, July 20, producers have announced.
The doors will open at 9.30 am and close at 4.30pm and entry to the show is free.
Presenter Fiona Bruce said: “this will be my seventh year on the Antiques Roadshow and I still feel so lucky to be presenting the programme.
“Every week is different; a new location and thousands of new visitors. The only constant is the pleasure of the unexpected - we never know what will turn up, from the most fabulous Faberge to the most humble object with a riveting story.”
People with large pieces of furniture or other big items can send details and photographs of their objects to: ANTIQUES ROADSHOW, BBC, Whiteladies Road, Bristol BS8 2LR or e-mail them to: firstname.lastname@example.org. It may be possible to arrange to look at the item in advance and organise transportation to the venue.
