The Antiques Roadshow
is back recording around the UK with some of Britain's leading antiques and fine arts specialists. We’re excited to be bringing the Roadshow to Swanage Pier and Seafront, Swanage
this year. On the day of Roadshow recordings, the specialists are 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.
You must have a ticket to attend the Antiques Roadshow this year as we are limiting the numbers in attendance. Successful applicants will receive their tickets 4-6 weeks ahead of the event date. In the event that we are over-subscribed, we reserve the right to allocate tickets on a selective basis.
You can choose from a morning or afternoon arrival time, the morning sessions are at 9am and 11am, and the afternoon sessions are at 1pm and 3pm.
We welcome people of all ages to the Antiques Roadshow, however please note anyone under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian over the age of 18. Children under the age of 8 do not require a ticket.
Antiques Roadshow is continually monitoring the latest government advice around public events.
To help minimise the spread of coronavirus the Company asks that You do not attend the venue if You begin to develop any of the symptoms of coronavirus or if You have come into close contact with someone who has tested positive for coronavirus. If You have registered for additional tickets on behalf of Your friends and family, the Company asks that You also let them know to stay at home if they need to.
In the event that the government guidance for productions changes, Lost In TV will communicate any updates to successful ticket holders.
What to expect on the day:
Due to the popularity of Antiques Roadshow you may be required to queue to see our expert team. There will be plenty to see on the day, and we’d encourage you to make a day of it, seeing some of our filming in progress, and soak up the Roadshow atmosphere.
Refreshments will be available to buy on the day, but you’re also welcome to bring your own food and drinks.
Ahead of the event day we’ll send out a more detailed FAQ document with information about everything to expect at the Antiques Roadshow. This will include guidance on each venue's policy on bringing dogs, parking arrangements, public transport, and accessibility.
