Antiques TV show Flog It! hits town

HUNDREDS of hopefuls lined the DLWP auditorium on Wednesday for the experience of BBC's Flog It! presented by Paul Martin.

They brought with them an array of collectibles and knick-knackery, from pottery and china to antique guns and paintings, which were then singled out to be valued by experts in the trade.

Any one of these could have turned into gold for the owner, as the invitation was to then go to auction with the aim of making a cheeky profit.

A crew of 45 handled the filming and logistics of the day, which should be on our screens in the autumn schedule, and the BBC was pleased this turned out to be one of the busiest venues as the crew travels around the country making the series.
