BBC Flog It comes to Wallasey Town Hall

The popular BBC One antiques programme Flog It presented by Paul Martin, is coming to Wirral on Saturday 8th March 2014.

Flog It – the major BBC antiques show is now on its thirteenth series and regularly achieves an audience of over two million viewers in its weekday afternoon slot.

Wallasey Town Hall will be hosting the Flog It valuation day.  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.

Last year the show made a significant find when a rare Aboriginal Broad Shield that had been kept hidden away in a Flog It viewers wardrobe was brought along to a valuation day in North Lincolnshire and went on to sell at auction for £30,000! The series also uncovered 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 £5000.

Louise Hibbins, Series Producer says “Paul Martin and the entire Flog It team are really pleased to be bringing the show to Wallasey; we have never been to the Wirral Peninsula 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.’

Paul Martin will be joined on the valuation day by Flog It on screen experts Anita Manning, Philip Serrell and Nick Davies.

Flog It will be at Wallasey Town Hall, Brighton Street, Wallasey, Wirral, CH44 8ED on Saturday 8th March 2014 between 09:30am and 4pm. The items selected at the valuation day will go under the hammer at Adam Partridge Auctioneers, 18 Jordan Street, Liverpool, L1 0BP on Wednesday 2nd April 2014.
