BBC Antiques Road Trip and Bargain Hunt to film at Lichfield auctions this October
TV cameras will be filming two of the UK’s most popular antiques programmes with Richard Winterton Auctioneers in October – and everyone is invited along.
The BBC’s Antiques Road Trip comes to The Lichfield Auction Centre for the first time on Monday, October 9, and a few weeks later the family firm welcomes back Bargain Hunt on Tuesday, October 31.
Both shows are filming during the Antiques & Home Sales taking place on those days and people are invited to come along and watch the auction action.
You don’t need to book, just turn up at the Wood End Lane saleroom at Fradley Park in good time – the auction centre opens at 9am and each sale starts at 9.30am.
A spokesman for the Antiques Road Trip team said: “We’re delighted to be coming to Lichfield for the first time.”
Auctioneer Richard Winterton will be yielding the gavel on both days and is inviting people to his saleroom.
“We’re looking forward to hosting the Antiques Road Trip team for the first time and are delighted to be welcoming back our friends at Bargain Hunt,” he said.
“Bargain Hunt was last with us at Fradley in February when we filmed the popular Coronation Special which aired in May.
“For this upcoming visit, I’m happy to say that once again Christmas will be coming early to Lichfield on October 31.
“On that date we will be filming the Bargain Hunt Christmas Specials at Fradley so do feel free to bring along some Christmassy attire or festive accessories to help make the episode a real Christmas cracker.”
