Cumbrians are being invited to show off their treasures when Holker Hall and Gardens hosts the Antiques Roadshow on Wednesday, July 6.

Many of Britain's leading antiques and fine arts specialists from the popular BBC One programme – presented by Fiona Bruce – will be on hand to offer free advice and valuations to visitors.

Simon Shaw, the show's executive producer, said: "The dramatic setting of Holker Hall and Gardens, amid the fells of Cumbria, makes it one of our most compelling locations for the filming of Antiques Roadshow this year.

"Our team of experts and Fiona love nothing better than hearing people’s stories and seeing what items they bring, so we hope as many people as possible come along to Holker Hall and enjoy what our visitors consistently tell us is a fantastic day out.”

Fiona added: "If you are a fan of Antiques Roadshow, curious to see behind the scenes, or just fancy a day out, I would urge you to dig out your treasures and come along - we’d love to see you!"

Antiques Roadshow is open from 9.30am until 4.30pm, and entry is free.

Anyone with an item with an unusual story attached, or large items of furniture, can let producers know in advance by emailing antiques.roadshow@bbc.co.uk or calling 0117 974 2395.
