THE stars of popular BBC One antiques programme Flog It come to Wirral later this year.
Host Paul Martin will be joined by on-screen experts Anita Manning, Philip Serrell and Nick Davies for filming of a valuation day at Wallasey Town Hall on Saturday, March 8, between 9.30am and 4pm.
The items selected at the valuation day will go under the hammer at Adam Partridge Auctioneers in Liverpool on Wednesday, April 2.
Now in its thirteenth series, the show regularly achieves audiences of more than two million viewers in its weekday afternoon slot..
Rather like a treasure hunt, members of the public are invited to bring 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 auctioneers hammer falls its owners make a tidy sum.
Everyone who goes along to the event will receive a free valuation – even if their antiques are not chosen to go forward for auction.
Series producer Louise Hibbins said: "Paul Martin and the entire Flog It team are really pleased to be bringing the show to Wallasey.
"We have never been to Wirral before and are very much looking forward to our visit to the Town Hall.
"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."
Mayor of Wirral, Cllr Dave Mitchell, said: ‘We are very much looking forward to welcoming the team from Flog It to our beautiful Town Hall on the Mersey waterfront.
"I am a big fan of the programme, and am sure it will receive a warm Wirral welcome from local residents, who have a great interest in history and heritage.
"This is a special year for Wallasey Town Hall as it not only celebrates its centenary this year, it also has a particular connection with World War One commemorations as it was used as a military hospital during the 1914-18 World War."
