Details

Flog It, the popular BBC One antiques programme presented by Paul Martin will be holding a free valuation day at the Royal Air Force Museum Cosford on Thursday 5 October. The Bristol based BBC production recently transmitted its 1000th episode and the 17th series is currently being recorded. The show regularly achieves an audience of more than two million viewers in its weekday afternoon slot.

Members of the public are invited to come along to the RAF Museum Cosford, with up to three antiques or collectables they might be interested in selling. Once valued, the owner and a team of experts decide whether an object is filmed and if it gets sent to Aston’s Auctioneers in Dudley on Thursday 26 October.

Everyone who goes along to the valuation day will receive a free appraisal of their items – even if their antiques are not chosen for filming or to go forward for auction.

Flog It has made many significant finds over its’ seventeen series including, in North Lincolnshire, a rare Aboriginal Broad Shield that had been kept hidden away in a viewer’s wardrobe before being brought along to a valuation day — it went on to sell at auction for £30,000! Flog It experts also discovered an unusual Royal Doulton Spook figurine in Blackpool which had been bought at a car boot sale for £2; it went on to sell at auction for £5,000.
