The West Country is the next location for the filming of popular TV series Antiques Roadshow.
Exeter Cathedral Green is the location to be included in the 36th series of the famous show. Specialists in fine arts and antiques will be available to give valuations to people who bring along family treasures and antiques, and will also provide advice.
The presenter of the BBC1 TV show is Fiona Bruce, who considers she fortunate to be a part of a programme she has enjoyed watching for many years. According to Fiona, the viewers are drawn in and held captivated by the history behind each item.
Many of the pieces have a story surrounding them, giving them strong elements of human interest. The experts slowly lead to the moment of valuation, when a person discovers whether the family heirloom is treasure – or a worthless but loved item. Fiona states that the programme is a mixture of drama, beauty and history all in one show.
During the last series, a number of valuable items were discovered – including a glass goblet that dates back to the 18th Century, bought for £2 and valued at £5,000.
Antiques can be discovered in the most unusual and unexpected places, but are more easily accessed at antique dealers. Antique furniture, like Victorian dining chairs and tables, can be found at dealers near Preston and the surrounding areas. Collectors can be sure of a genuine antique discovery at reputable dealers.
