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 Hanbury Hall, near Droitwich, on Sunday, September 20.
The house will be closed, but the garden and park will be open as usual. The event opens at 9.30am and closes at 4.30pm. Entry to the show is free and no ticket or pre-registration is required.
Antiques Roadshow presenter Fiona Bruce said: “This will be my 8th 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 Fabergé to the most humble object with a riveting story.”
During the last series the Antiques Roadshow unearthed some amazing finds – a portrait by a renowned artist painted on a pillowcase in a POW camp, Star Wars memorabilia valued at £40,000 and a Chinese enamel box bought for 20p and worth over £10,000.
BBC Antiques Roadshow Executive Editor, Simon Shaw said: “The beautiful house and parkland of Hanbury Hall will be the perfect backdrop for filming Antiques Roadshow.
“Every show is different but we love seeing all the treasures people bring to Antiques Roadshow, and hearing their stories behind them.
“Even after 38 years, the magic formula of surprising some lucky guests with exciting news about their treasures is still a thrill for us, the visitors and the viewers. As it is on a Sunday we hope lots of families can make it along for a great, free day out.”
