Antiques Roadshow presenter Fiona Bruce

BBC One's Antiques Roadshow to visit Exeter Cathedral

BBC ONE’s ever popular Sunday evening programme ANTIQUES ROADSHOW will be filming for its 36th series on Exeter Cathedral Green, on Thursday, 12th September, 2013. The doors open at 9.30 am and close at 4.30pm. Entry to the show is free.

This will be presenter Fiona Bruce’s sixth year with the Roadshow and she says, “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. The AR isn't just about antiques - it's history, beauty and drama all wrapped up in one.'

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.
