The BBC's Antiques Roadshow in Saltaire

Fiona BruceThe Saltaire editions of the BBC's Antiques Roadshow are now due to transmit on 13th March and 20th March, 2011. (We have been warned that the schedule may change. We'll try to keep you posted.) Read below for more on when the ARS was filmed in 2010.

BBC ONE’s ever popular Sunday evening programme ANTIQUES ROADSHOW will be filming for its 33rd series at the Victoria Hall, Saltaire, on Thursday, 29th April, 2010. The doors open at 9.30 am and close at 4.30pm. Entry is free.

This will be presenter Fiona Bruce’s third 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.

Important notice regarding parking in Saltaire

The public should be aware that there is no parking at the venue and are encouraged to use local transport. They should also be aware that they may have to queue outside the hall at some point if the hall gets busy inside.

Antiques RoadshowSeries Editor Simon Shaw says: “The team are all looking forward to visiting such an interesting venue as Saltaire. It’s always exciting to see what will come to light on the day. We regularly see between 1500 and 2000 visitors on the day. Despite the high turnout everyone will get to see an expert.”
