Antiques Roadshow coming to Swanage: How to get tickets and a valuation

SWANAGE Pier will host BBC favourite the Antiques Roadshow this summer, it has been revealed.

Stars and experts including Fiona Bruce are set to head for Dorset in June, with people able to apply to bring their pieces along for valuation.

“We are excited to be able to bring the Antiques Roadshow to the fascinating Swanage Pier and Seafront in Swanage,” a BBC spokesperson said.

However, while people are able to bring their items along on the day – Friday, June 23 – they will need to apply for tickets before the event.

“Following the success of our last two years, Roadshows in 2023 will once again be ticketed events only,” the spokesperson added.
