Popular Sunday evening programme Antiques Roadshow will be filming for its 37th series in the grounds of Belton House, near Grantham, on Thursday, July 31.

The doors open at 9.30am and close at 4.30pm. Entry to the show is free.

Presenter Fiona Bruce says: “This will be my seventh year on the Antiques Roadshow and I still feel so lucky to be presenting the programme. Every week is different; a new location and thousands of new visitors. The only constant is the pleasure of the unexpected - we never know what will turn up, from the most fabulous Faberge to the most humble object with a riveting story...”

Some of Britain’s leading antiques and fine arts specialists will be on hand to offer free advice and valuations to visitors, who are invited to raid their attics and take along their family heirlooms, household treasures and car boot bargains for inspection by experts.

During the last series the Roadshow unearthed some amazing finds - memorabilia bought from the last survivor of the Titanic, a teapot once owned by Nelson and a portrait by Van Dyck which turned out to be worth over £300,000.

People with large pieces of furniture or other big items can send details and photographs of their objects to: Antiques Roadshow, BBC, Whiteladies Road, Bristol BS8 2LR or e-mail them to: antiques.roadshow@bbc.co.uk. It may be possible to arrange to look at the item in advance and organise transportation to the venue.

Series Editor Simon Shaw adds: “We love meeting our viewers at Antiques Roadshows. And so many people tell us how much they enjoy the experience of meeting Fiona and the experts and seeing how the show is made. And, even 37 years later, the magic formula of suprising some lucky guests with exciting news about their treasure still seems to come true. So join us at .... It might just be your day.”
