Flog It at Croome Court


The popular BBC One antiques programme Flog It presented by Paul Martin, is set to visit Worcestershire on Thursday 26th May 2016. Flog It is now on its fifteenth series and regularly achieves an audience of over two million viewers in its weekday afternoon slot.
Croome, located near Pershore 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 or collectables they might be interested in selling. Once valued, the owner and a team of experts decide whether an object should go forward for auction. If the item is chosen for inclusion in the show it is included in an auction a few weeks later – hopefully when the auctioneers hammer falls its owners make a tidy sum. Everyone who goes along to the valuation day will receive a free appraisal of their items – even if their antiques are not chosen to go forward for auction.
Flog It has made many significant finds over its fifteen series, including in North Lincolnshire a rare Aboriginal Broad Shield that had been kept hidden away in a viewer’s wardrobe which was brought along to a valuation day, it went on to sell at auction for £30,000! Flog It also discovered 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.
Alex Habgood, Series Location Manager says “Paul Martin and the entire Flog It team are really pleased to be bringing the show back to Worcestershire. Croome will provide the perfect setting for our valuation day; our experts are all looking forward to welcoming people along for their free valuations. 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”
Paul Martin, the shows presenter said “I’m delighted to be bringing Flog It to Croome. Last time we visited Worcestershire we received a really warm welcome and I hope when we return in May as many people as possible will come along to see us with their items for valuation.”
The BBC plan to transmit the four editions of Flog It featuring Croome, near Pershore, Worcester, within a year of recording. Paul Martin will be joined at the valuation day by on screen experts Adam Partridge, Natasha Raskin and David Fletcher.
Flog It will be at Croome between 09.30am and 4.00pm on Thursday 26th May. The items selected at the valuation day will go under the hammer at Littleton Auctions in Middle Littleton on Thursday 16th June.
