Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum is delighted to welcome BBC ONE’s ANTIQUES ROADSHOW back to the museum this autumn.
Filming for the 37th series of the ever popular Sunday evening programme will take place on Thursday 9th October 2014. The doors will open at 9.30am and close at 4.30pm. Entry to the show is free.
Presenter Fiona Bruce said: “This will be my 7th year on the Antiques Roadshow and I still feel so lucky to be presenting the programme. Every week is different; a new location and thousands of new visitors. The only constant is the pleasure of the unexpected - we never know what will turn up, from the most fabulous Faberge to the most humble object with a riveting story...'
Chair of Glasgow Life, Councillor Archie Graham, said; “We are incredibly excited that Antiques Roadshow have chosen to return to the Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum. The show always comes from a magnificent setting and as home to one of Europe’s finest art collections we feel Kelvingrove is the perfect venue to delight visitors and viewers at home.
“Although it’s impossible to guess what people will bring along, there are sure to be a few exciting surprises. That is what makes the Antiques Roadshow great viewing. So I’d encourage the people of Glasgow to dig out their possessions and come and have them assessed. It would be fitting to unearth a real gem in the building that houses so many of the city’s most treasured objects.”
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 lofts 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: firstname.lastname@example.org
. It may be possible to arrange to look at the item in advance and organise transportation to the venue.
