TV ANTIQUES expert Kate Bliss will casting a careful eye over collectibles in Warwick next Saturday (July 8).

Friends of the Royal Regiment of Fusiliers Museum will be holding a family fun day in the museum’s garden at St John’s House, where Kate, who’s a regular on the BBC’s Antiques Roadshow and Bargain Hunt, will be valuing items throughout the day.

David Seeney, Chair of the Friends, said: “I’m thrilled that Kate will be here to value people’s antiques. She’s so knowledgeable and enthusiastic, we’re very lucky that she’s supporting the event.”

Other experts on hand include members of the Birmingham Medal Society, who specialise in militaria.

Aside from antiques, visitors can enjoy the Warwickshire military band, try their luck at paint ball, and experience history brought to life by World War I re-enactments.

It will be a busy weekend for antique enthusiasts, as more experts from Bargain Hunt head to the the British Motor Museum in Gaydon the very next day.

Presenter Anita Manning and experts Philip Serrell and Richard Madley will be filming the programme at the indoor antiques fair on Sunday July 9.

The show’s red and blue teams will go head to head – with the help of their experts – looking for the best items to buy to make a profit from.

The antiques fair runs all weekend. Filming will be on Sunday only. Entry is £4 per person (£3 for concessions) and under 16s are free.
