Belton House will be back on TV screens this Sunday appearing on BBC1’s Antiques Roadshow at 8pm.
After visiting Belton to film in the summer of 2014, the Antiques Roadshow team greeted thousands of visitors eager to find out more about their treasured possessions.
There were plenty of unique objects brought in to be put under the magnifying glass. Amongst the treasures was a collection of First World War machine gun militaria, a 400 year old Japanese chest, and a ceramic souvenir model of the first elephant at Regent’s Park Zoo.
Marketing and events officer Sam Gee, said: “It was a privilege to welcome Fiona Bruce and the Antiques Roadshow to Belton last year. There was an amazing turnout of visitors excited to discover more about their family heirlooms and quirky purchases. We’re really looking forward to the programme, and I’m sure lots of viewers that visited on the day will be checking to see if they made it into a shot or two!’
Tune in to BBC1 at 8pm on Sunday, April 12 to see the programme.
