Antiques Roadshow at Media City

Antiques Roadshow at Media City

Fiona Bruce and the team of Antiques Roadshow experts will be waiting to welcome you, so dust off your family heirlooms and dig out those car boot bargains and bring them along for free advice and valuations to visitors.

Last year, the programme celebrated four decades on the road with some truly amazing finds, as presenter Fiona Bruce explains: "Can this year be even better than our last? We'll have to go some way to top the most valuable Faberge ever seen on the programme, a correction to Darwin's theory of evolution by the great man himself and one of the best collections of show business memorabilia ever seen by our experts."

"But I have every confidence we'll do it and the thousands of people that come along to see us will pull some extraordinary things out of their bags/trolleys/bits of newspaper/suitcases/boats – and one year even out of a cart led by a dog. I can't wait."

Robert Murphy, series producer of Antiques Roadshow, said: "We are looking forward to welcoming thousands of visitors when we bring Antiques Roadshow to Salford Quays and MediaCityUK."

"It promises to be an entertaining day out at the end of the holidays and we're looking forward to seeing cherished objects and hearing personal stories from the people of Salford, Manchester and beyond – make a day of it!"

"It's a great free, family day out and you can see how we make one of BBC One's most popular programmes. Our team of experts are on hand to help visitors discover the hidden history of their objects – you never know, it might just be your item that turns out to be something very special and potentially very valuable!"
