It’s time to dust off those family heirlooms and dig out your car boot bargains, as we welcome Fiona Bruce and the BBC Antiques Roadshow team to Powis on Tuesday 19 July 2022. For the first time in the show’s history, it will be a ticketed event so read on to find out how to book your place.

For more than four decades the Antiques Roadshow has remained one of the most popular factual programmes on BBC One with some six million people regularly tuning in on a Sunday evening.

Some of the programmes most fascinating finds include a Fabergé flower ornament worth £1million. a guitar owned by not one but two Beatles, a handwritten document signed By Elizabeth I, and a leather jacket worn by John F Kennedy. We can’t wait to see what discoveries are made here at Powis.

We will do our best to keep any disruption to a minimum, but you will be unable to access some areas of the garden if you have not been allocated a ticket for the Antiques Roadshow.
