BBC's Flog It coming to Cosford
A popular BBC antiques programme will be returning to a museum.
Flog It, presented by Paul Martin will be holding a free valuation day at the Royal Air Force Museum Cosford on October 5, between 9.30am and 4pm. .
The Bristol based BBC production recently transmitted its 1000th episode and the 17th series is currently being recorded. The show regularly achieves an audience of more than two million viewers in its weekday afternoon slot.
Members of the public are invited to come along to the RAF Museum Cosford, with up to three antiques or collectables they might be interested in selling.
Once valued, the owner and a team of experts decide whether an object is filmed and if it gets sent to Aston’s Auctioneers in Dudley on October 26.
Everyone who goes along to the valuation day will receive a free appraisal of their items – even if their antiques are not chosen for filming or to go forward for auction.
Mr Martin said:“It’s great to be filming Flog It in Shropshire; I’m so pleased to be getting an opportunity to share this part of the world with our viewers. We always receive a warm welcome whenever we come to the county and I’m hoping plenty of people will take the chance to bring along their items to show us.”
RAF Museum Cosford Public Relations Executive, Michelle Morgans said: “We’re delighted to host the BBC Flog It! team here at the RAF Museum Cosford and we invite local residents to take part and join us on the day. Alongside the filming of a major TV show and the chance to meet the experts and get their items valued, visitors will also have the opportunity to view the Museum’s historic aircraft and artefact collection for free.”
The BBC will be making four editions of the show featuring RAF Museum Cosford and they will be transmitted within eighteen months of recording.
Paul Martin will be joined at the valuation day by on screen experts Jonathan Pratt, Adam Partridge and Claire Rawle.
