ANTIQUE lovers are being given the opportunity to have their hidden treasure valued by television experts.

Popular BBC series Flog It! is being filmed at the Blackpool Tower Circus on Friday, October 19, from 9.30am to 4pm.

This unique event gives anyone the chance to turn up at the venue to have an eye cast over their precious collectables.

Heidi Ellert, series producer, said: “Paul Martin and the entire Flog It! team are really pleased to be bringing the show to Blackpool.

“The Circus will provide the perfect setting for our valuation day event, it is a stunning and very historic location; our experts are all looking forward to offering people the chance to have their items valued in the arena of this iconic attraction.

“We all hope you will join us for a free valuation, 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.”

Stand out items from the day will be picked out and auctioned at Gerrards Auction Rooms, St Annes, on November 8.

Iain Hawkins, Head of Merlin Entertainments’ Blackpool Cluster, said: “We are really looking forward to welcoming Flog It! to The Blackpool Tower Circus.
