BBC Flog It coes to Hopetoun house

Antiques lovers in the Journal and Gazette area have the chance to have their treasured items valued when the popular BBC One antiques programme Flog It comes to Hopetoun House in March.

Hopetoun will host the Flog It valuation day on Thursday, March 20.

Rather like a treasure hunt, members of the public are invited to take 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 – hopefully, when the auctioneer’s hammer falls, its owners make a tidy sum.

Everyone who goes to Hopetoun will receive a free valuation – even if their antiques do not go to auction.

Louise Hibbins, series producer, said: “Paul Martin and the entire Flog It team are really pleased to be bringing the show to Hopetoun House.

“We always receive a warm welcome when we come to Scotland and the house, with its rich history, will provide the perfect setting.”

Piers de Salis, Hopetoun’s general manager, said: “We are all really pleased to welcome Paul Martin and the Flog It team.”

Presenter Paul Martin will be joined on the valuation day by Flog It on screen experts James Lewis, Catherine Southon and Adam Partridge.

If articles are chosen for valuation, they will go under the hammer at Great Western Auctions, Glasgow, on April 12.
