BBC One's Antiques Roadshow is back this summer and invites you to share your stories
Fiona Bruce and Antiques Roadshow experts Judith Miller, Lennox Cato, Paul Atterbury, Mark Hill and Rupert Maas.



LONDON.- The iconic roadshow is set to return this summer, presenter Fiona Bruce and the wonderful team of experts can’t wait to discover your forgotten family heirlooms and missing masterpieces.

For the first time in more than four decades, the series will be filmed on a closed set with a small invited audience only, to ensure the safety of guests, production and the wider public.

Viewers are being asked to contact Antiques Roadshow about their objects as soon as possible so the team can start planning these really special shows. Upcoming locations are listed on the website where viewers can use the ‘Share Your Story’ form to fill out details of their objects.

Presenter Fiona Bruce, who will be filming her 13th series of Antiques Roadshow, said she was delighted to be going back on the road in search of treasures.

"Normally we welcome around 5,000 people to each Antiques Roadshow, but of course in these extraordinary times we will have to do things very differently. We've come up with a new way to safely film the show yet still bring you amazing items and stories. I can't wait to see what treasures you have hidden in your homes.”




First broadcast in 1979 the Roadshow remains one of the most popular factual programmes on BBC One with some six million people regularly watching on Sunday evenings.

The award-winning show has visited hundreds of different venues both in the UK and abroad, but this year the entire series will be filmed with an invited audience only.

Robert Murphy, BBC Studios Series Editor, said: "To keep everybody safe and comply with current government and WHO regulations we have planned our filming days very differently this year. We won't be holding large open events, but we will be inviting people who have written in advance to attend. Our team of experts are looking forward to seeing your heirlooms and finds so do go to our website and let us know about your treasures. We could be inviting you on the show to find out if that mystery object that's been gathering dust all these years is actually worth a fortune!"

Some of the Roadshow's most fascinating finds include a Faberge flower ornament worth £1million, a handwritten document signed by Elizabeth I, a ring containing a lock of author Charlotte Bronte's hair, a wristwatch owned by Lawrence of Arabia, a 17th Century miniature book reviewing Shakespeare's plays and a leather jacket worn by John F Kennedy.

Many objects featured on the Roadshow are found in some extraordinary places. Winston Churchill's hat and letters were discovered in a dump near London, diamond jewellery sewn into a sofa and a vanity set from Donald Trump’s yacht was found in a charity shop.

Windermere Jetty Museum is one of eight venues nationwide chosen to host Fiona Bruce and her team of experts this summer.

Rhian Harris, CEO of Lakeland Arts, said: “We are delighted that Windermere Jetty Museum will still be able to host the BBC Antiques Roadshow this year and are looking forward to welcoming the experts to site. It’s even more of a golden ticket opportunity to attend this year, with “entry by antique” only, and we are looking forward to discovering a host of local and regional stories on the shores of Windermere”
