Lytham Hall is pleased to announce that they have been chosen as one of the few nationwide locations for the upcoming 42nd series of the BBC’s Antiques Roadshow.
Managers at the Hall have been in negotiations with the BBC for many months, and they are thrilled to be one of the nine places to be filmed throughout this Summer.
“As you can imagine we are over the moon,” explains Deputy Manager Paul Lomax.
“To have a national institution such as the Antiques Roadshow coming to Lytham Hall is testament to all the hard work staff and volunteers have been putting in over the last couple of years. The programme is so high profile, which in turn will be amazing for the Hall. We received the good news before Christmas but had to keep it secret until the BBC revealed all of their new locations. As you can imagine – it’s been very difficult!”
The programme will be filmed at Lytham Hall on Tuesday June 11th, and they are praying for good weather!
It is a free event for the public to bring along their treasures to be valued, or just to have a look at how a large programme like this is made.
General Manager Peter Anthony has been working flat out to raise the profile of the Hall, seeking new opportunities wherever possible to put Lytham Hall firmly on the map. He is delighted at this wonderful news.
