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."
