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 bring along their family heirlooms, household treasures and car boot bargains for inspection by the experts.

Series Editor Simon Shaw says: “The team are all looking forward to visiting Aberystwyth. It’s always exciting to see what will come to light on the day. We regularly see between 1500 and 2000 visitors on the day but despite the high turnout everyone will get to see an expert.”
