ANTIQUE’S Roadshow will come to Lowther Castle to film part of its 37th series, the BBC has announced today.
The popular Sunday evening programme will use the grounds of the Eden castle as the backdrop to an episode, with filming set to be carried out on June 12.
“This will be my seventh year on the Antiques Roadshow and I still feel so lucky to be presenting the programme,” said presenter, Fiona Bruce.
“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 Faberge to the most humble object with a riveting story.”
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.
During the last series the Roadshow unearthed memorabilia bought from the last survivor of the Titanic, a teapot once owned by Nelson and a portrait by Van Dyck which turned out to be worth over £300,000.
The doors will open at 9.30am and close at 4.30pm.
Entry to the show will be free.
