BBC antiques series Flog It comes to UoN

Thursday, March 30, 2017

Flog It, the popular BBC One antiques programme presented by Paul Martin, is set to visit Nottingham on Friday 14 April. The Bristol-based BBC production recently filmed its 1,000th episode and the 16th series is currently being recorded. The Trent Building at The University of Nottingham will be hosting the Flog It valuation day.

Staff, students and the public are invited to bring up to three antiques or collectables they might be interested in selling. Once valued, the owner and a team of experts decide whether an object is filmed and it gets sent to Mellors and Kirk Auctioneers in Nottingham for inclusion in their sale on Wednesday 10 May.

Everyone who goes along to the valuation day will receive a free appraisal of their items – even if their antiques are not chosen for filming or to go forward for auction.

The BBC will be making four editions of the show featuring The University of Nottingham and they will be transmitted within eighteen months of recording. Paul Martin will be joined at the valuation day by on screen experts Charles Hanson, Caroline Hawley and Michael Baggott.

Andy May, General Manager, Nottingham Conferences: “Through our offices based on University Park we manage a diverse range of conferences and events, from internal day meetings and academic conferences all the way through to residential sporting events such as the UK Corporate Games being held this Summer at The University of Nottingham. We look forward to welcoming the Flog It experts to the Trent Building further demonstrating the breadth of our conference and events offering here at The University of Nottingham”.

BBC Flog It will be in The Trent Building at The University of Nottingham, University Park, Nottingham, NG7 2RD between 9.30am and 4.00pm on Friday 14 April. The items selected for filming at the valuation day will go under the hammer at Mellors and Kirk Auctioneers on Wednesday 10 May.
