The popular Antique Road Trip TV programme recently returned to the Lancashire seaside town of Southport, to film an episode of this long running show.
It is hoped that this return visit will repeat the success of the episode shown in 2012, bringing some potential antique and collectible buyers as well as tourists into the town.
The TV crew spent some time filming both inside and outside one of the town’s popular antique and crafts shops. Viewers will see a wide range of antique and collectible items available in the town and surrounding area.
The show’s producers decided to come back to Southport following a particularly successful visit last year when antique expert John Nolan was tempted by the array of antiques, and made his purchases from local antique shops.
This year it was the turn of Charles Hanson to choose some suitable antiques to sell on and, hopefully, make a profit. Viewers will see Hanson discuss the merits of various antiques with the owner of the shop, before making his choice and then haggling to try and get the best possible price.
Tim Wonacott will, as usual, narrate the programme with his typical amusing comments adding to the appeal of the show.
The show will once again bring to the public’s attention the potential of purchasing good quality antiques from local Lancashire antique dealers – especially if they are looking for more practical items they can use in their homes, such as antique bookcases or Victorian dining chairs .
