Do you have an antique cabinet in your Lancashire home that’s full of curios, or an antique mahogany partners desk containing a few family heirlooms? If so, you might want to reserve tickets for the second leg of Jonty Hearnden’s What’s In Your Attic tour, which will be visiting Shropshire and Birmingham this November.
With a background as an antique dealer, Hearnden is one of the most recognisable antiques specialists on TV today, and a stalwart of shows like Antiques Roadshow and Cash in the Attic. An expert in everything from fine porcelain to antique marquetry furniture , Cumbria viewers can meet Hearnden off-screen at charity auctions and valuation events. He has also written two books for Miller’s – one being a guide to buying antique furniture and the other giving advice on the antiques and collectibles to be discovered in people’s homes. Called “What’s In Your Attic”, it has inspired a stage show of the same name, visiting theatres across England and Wales for a series of single evening performances during which Hearnden will tell behind-the-scenes stories, answer questions from the audience and appraise their antiques – which must be small and portable – on stage.
Jonty’s last show was on 23rd June, when he visited Sudbury in Suffolk before taking a break for the summer. The tour restarts on 3rd October at Redhill, Surrey. In November, he will venture to the Midlands, visiting Lichfield on 1st and Market Drayton, Shropshire, on 24th.
Market Drayton is the nearest venue to Lancashire, but is still over an hour’s drive away. If you need a valuation on the items in your Victorian mahogany partners desk , a Preston antique dealer will do the job for free.
