THE BBC has announced it is to film its popular Antiques Roadshow programme in the grounds of Oxburgh Hall, on Thursday, July 17.
The doors open at 9.30am and close at 4.30pm.
This year the Roadshow has a new presenter, Fiona Bruce, right, who said: "Presenting the Antiques Roadshow is, for me, one of those rare and very lucky coincidences in television when you get to work on a show that you already love to watch.
"Exploring the human story behind every object is what makes Antiques Roadshow so fascinating. And everyone loves the agony and ecstasy of the 'what's it worth? moment."
Some 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 bargains for inspection by the experts. People with large pieces of furniture or other big items can send details and photographs of their objects to: Antiques Roadshow, BBC, Whiteladies Road, Bristol BS8 2LR or e-mail them to: antiques.roadshow@ bbc.co.uk.
It may be possible to arrange to look at the item in advance and organise transportation to the venue.
Series editor Simon Shaw said: "The team are all looking forward to visiting Oxburgh Hall. It's always exciting to see what will come to light on the day. We regularly see between 1,500 and 2,000 visitors on the day.
"Despite the high turnout everyone will get to see an expert."
