It’s time to dust off your treasures for a great day out as BBC One’s ever-popular Sunday evening programme Antiques Roadshow comes to Baddesley Clinton on Wednesday 8 June.
The doors for Antiques Roadshow open at 9.30am and close at 4.30pm. Entry to Antiques Roadshow is free, everyone is welcome, and no tickets or pre-registration is required.
Many of Britain’s leading antiques and fine arts specialists will be on hand to offer free advice and valuations to visitors. So raid your attics and bring along your family heirlooms, household treasures and car-boot sale bargains for inspection by the experts.
" The best part of working on Antiques Roadshow is that we never know who or what is going to turn up on the day. The visitors, the objects they bring, their stories and the location all combine to make a fabulous experience that we aim to capture for the viewers. If you are a fan of Antiques Roadshow, curious to see behind the scenes, or just fancy a day out, I would urge you to dig out your treasures and come along - we’d love to see you!"
In 2015 nearly 35,000 people attended Antiques Roadshow in the course of the year. Fascinating finds included a jacket belonging to former US president JFK, a musical penknife valued at £80,000, a sketch believed to be by Picasso and bought for a few pounds in a house clearance sale, and a precious toy panda that once flew with the Dambusters.
" The magnificent manor house of Baddesley Clinton with its stunning moat and gardens will provide the perfect backdrop to our filming of Antiques Roadshow on 8 June. "
