BBC Antiques Roadshow at Helmingham Hall Gardens
August 31 @ 9:30 am - 4:30 pm
Next year, BBC One’s much-loved Antiques Roadshow will celebrate 40 years of touring the country, valuing family treasures, car-boot sale and charity shop finds and we are extremely excited that Helmingham Hall has been chosen as one of its venues.
Presenter Fiona Bruce announced the venues in a special Antiques Roadshow which looked back at the highlights of 2016, and updated stories from the year. Among the venues Fiona and the Antiques Roadshow team of experts will visit in 2017 visit are Queen Victoria’s favourite summer home, Osborne on the Isle of Wight, as well a special show outside The Queen Vic pub on EastEnders’ Albert Square at which invited guests will bring precious objects from the world of film, music, theatre and TV.
Fiona Bruce, presenter of Antiques Roadshow since 2008, said: “As well as the 40th series of Antiques Roadshow, it will be my own 10th series on the programme next year. Where does the time go? Meeting fantastic people, hearing their stories, going to fabulous locations and, best of all unearthing hidden treasures clearly makes the time fly. I hope as many people as possible come along to see us in 2017 at one of our fascinating venues, it’s a great, free day out, you can see behind the scenes of one of your favourite shows, and who knows? We’d love to make your 2017 extra memorable with surprising news about your treasures.”
Aside from the special one-off recording on Albert Square, everyone is welcome to bring their treasures to Antiques Roadshow filming. Entry is free and no pre-registration, tickets or appointments are required, visitors just turn up on the day.
