Got Antiques? Flog It! Is Coming To Manchester

IT’S time to dust of great-granny’s hoarded knick-knacks...

BBC antiques programme Flog It! is coming to Manchester and holding valuation day events at The Museum of Science & Industry on Friday 8 March between 9.30am and 4pm.

Members of the public are invited to go along with their antiques and collectables and have them valued free of charge by the Flog It! team of experts. If selected for filming, you could even make some money by selling your items at Frank Marshall Auctioneers in Knutsford a few weeks later.

Previous programmes have seen a ceramic bowl, bought for £4 at a car boot sale, achieving £1,500 and a lady in Aberdeen who sold a Shelley tea set for £3,400. But none are better than the gentleman who brought a ceremonial cup which later sold for an impressive £44,000.

Louise Hibbins, series producer said: "Paul Martin and the entire Flog It! team are really pleased to be bringing the show to Manchester. MOSI will provide the perfect setting for our valuation day event; our experts are all looking forward to offering people the chance to have their items valued in such an important and interesting museum which allows its visitors to uncover Manchester’s many industrial and scientific achievements. We all hope you will join us for a free valuation, 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."

Flog It! will be at MOSI, Liverpool Road, Manchester, M3 4FP on Friday 8 March between 9.30am and 4pm. The items selected at the valuation day will go under the hammer at Frank Marshall Auctioneers, Marshall House, Church Hill, Knutsford, Cheshire, WA16 6DH on Tuesday 26 March.
