Thousands flock to Antiques Road Show


THOUSANDS of people flocked to Arley Hall, near Warrington, today for the visit of the popular BBC television Antiques Road Show.
The weather stayed fine, and antiques lovers of all ages enjoyed the unique atmosphere of the grounds of the house that is the home of Lord and Lady Ashbrook – and has been the home of their family since the 15th century.
It was a family occasion, with often three generations of a family visiting the stands of the specialist antiques experts with their family heirlooms to be assessed and valued.
Many enjoyed picnics in the grounds while others visited the Arley Hall restaurant, the Antiques Roadshow tea tent or various other caterers.
Newsreader Fiona Bruce – the current face of the long-running programme – was there, along with the many experts who have become familiar faces to TV audiences.
Some families went home happy to find their prized possessions were worth more than they expected. Others were disappointed to learn the junk they had kept in the attic for years was just that…junk.
But the smiling faces suggested that most people enjoyed the day.
The programme filmed today will be broadcast on a date to be announced later.
