Antiques Roadshow rolls into Newport's Tredegar House

South Wales Argus: HOST: Fiona Bruce HOST: Fiona Bruce

ANTIQUE collectors will be showing their finds to leading experts at the filming of an episode of the Antiques Roadshow on Sunday.

The cult TV show, presented by Fiona Bruce, last visited the area in 2013 where they found treasures including an Indian ivory cottage sewing box worth more than £8,000 in Chepstow.

Visitors and fans of the show will also be able to meet leading antique specialists Eric Knowles, Judith Miller, Paul Atterbury, Henry Sandon and Lisa Lloyd, who will be hoping to find similar treasures at Tredegar House this weekend. They will be on hand to offer free valuations and advice.

Series editor Simon Shaw said: “As a television producer, it’s a scary prospect when we turn up for a day’s filming and no knowledge of what might turn up. I often look at the queue first thing and say a quiet prayer that there really are interesting pieces in those bags. Amazingly we still keep finding fascinating pieces – and some of the best aren’t necessarily the most valuable.”

The doors are open from 9.30am to 4.30pm. Entry to the event is free.
