THE popular BBC One antiques programme Flog It! presented by Paul Martin, is coming to Wirral on Saturday, March 8.
Wallasey Town Hall will be hosting the valuation day.
Rather like a treasure hunt, members of the public are invited to bring along up to three antiques and collectables they might be interested in selling.
Once valued, the owner and a team of experts decide whether an item should go forward for auction. If the item is chosen it is included in a sale a few weeks later.
Everyone who goes along to the event will receive a free valuation – even if their antiques are not chosen to go forward for auction.
Louise Hibbins, series producer says: “Paul Martin and the entire Flog It! team are really pleased to be bringing the show to Wallasey; we have never been to Wirral before and are very much looking forward to our visit to the Town Hall.
“If you’ve ever wondered how much your boot sale bargains or clutter in the loft might be worth, now is your chance to find out.”
Mayor of Wirral, Cllr Dave Mitchell, said: ‘We are very much looking forward to welcoming the team from Flog It to our beautiful Town Hall on the Mersey waterfront.
“This is a special year for Wallasey Town Hall as it not only celebrates its centenary this year, it also has a particular connection with World War One commemorations as it was used as a military hospital during the 1914-18 World War.”
Flog It! will be at Wallasey Town Hall, Brighton Street, on Saturday, March 8 2014 from 9.30am-4pm.
The items will go under the hammer at Adam Partridge Auctioneers, 18 Jordan Street, Liverpool, L1 0BP on Wednesday, April 2 2014.
