It’s time to dust off your treasures for a great, free day out as BBC One’s ever-popular Sunday evening programme Antiques Roadshow comes to Black Country Living Museum on Wed 21 Jun.
Many of Britain’s leading antiques and fine arts specialists will be on hand to offer free advice and valuations to visitors, who are invited to raid their attics and bring along their family heirlooms, household treasures and car-boot sale bargains for inspection by the experts.
Antiques Roadshow will be 'taking over' Black Country Living Museum from 9.30am until 4.30pm on the day. Entry to the show is free, everyone is welcome, and no tickets or pre-registration is required.
Antiques Roadshow presenter Fiona Bruce, who marks her tenth year presenting the programme, said: “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!”
Visitors are welcome to just turn up on the day, but if you have an item with a particularly unusual story attached, or perhaps an interesting collection, or large items of furniture, you can let the Antiques Roadshow team know via their website. Alternatively, email: [email protected]
