I have been a specialist on the BBC Antiques Roadshow since 2007, and am primarily on the Miscellaneous tables on the filming day. Please do dig out your treasures and recall your stories, then come along and say hello! Not all specialists attend all Roadshows, so please email me to ask me if I’m attending a particular show.
The 2021 calendar has not yet been announced due to Covid-19 restrictions, but the locations for filming days are listed below.
At this moment in time, the BBC are only taking online submissions for items that you wish to show to the team of experts. All submissions will be reviewed and a number selected for filming at one of the events this summer. These events will be invitation only in order to comply with Health & Safety regulations due to Covid-19 but the BBC are continually monitoring the latest government advice around public events. If your item is shortlisted for filming, a member of the BBC team will contact you to discuss potential filming dates. For more information, and to submit your photographs, please click here.
