The BBC have been filming at The Antiques Warehouse yet again! BBC Antiques Road Trip came to film an episode of the show with Kate Bliss presenting. They arrived in a vintage sports Volvo P1800.

We are looking forward to the programme, which will be aired in September 2017. I wonder who the celebrity will be!?

Remembering BBC2’s Bargain Hunt Famous Finds

…With Kiki Dee and Toyah Willcox

Tim Wonnacott and Hilary Burroughs @ The Antiques Warehouse 2009Tim Wonnacott and Hilary Burroughs

The Antiques Warehouse was the featured venue for a star-studded edition of Bargain Hunt Famous Finds for BBC2 on Wednesday 1st April 2009. Kiki Dee and Toyah Willcox, both singing stars whose work has spanned decades, each teamed up with a friend to take part in filming the programme, along with presenter Tim Wonnacott, and a large film crew, on what turned out to be a day of appalling weather. It had snowed heavily the day before, and frozen overnight, so the BBC team had to weather treacherous road conditions. Nevertheless, the intrepid team were all present for an early start to a long day of filming, in which several interesting and quirky items were purchased, and discussed, on camera.

That was the last post of our old website and the first test post of our new, underdevelopment website.
