It's come around to the season of filming the Antiques Roadshow again, and luckily the weather is on our side!
Last week I visited RAF Coningsby at Woodhall Spa in Lincolnshire, and currently am on my way to Plas Newydd on Anglesey for tomorrow's filming.
Later dates I am giving valuations at include:
Broughton Castle near Banbury, Oxfordshire on 21st June
Bolsover Castle, near Chesterfield, Derbyshire on 9th July
Balmoral, Ballater, Aberdeenshire on 30th July
If you have something interesting lying around, do come along!
I will also be at the NEC 'Antiques for Everyone' Summer fair again from 23rd to 26th July, so it's going to be a busy summer.

We've been working hard on the upcoming Miller's Antiques Handbook & Price Guide 2016-17 and it's coming together! With this, we've teamed up again with Mark Hill to start working on the Collectables Price Guide.
We will also be at the Antiques for Everyone Spring Fair which takes place 9-12 April 2015. Read more and keep updated with the event here.
If you haven't managed to take a read, you can find my latest Telegraph Luxury article here. Recently, Woolley & Wallis' Nick Rocke sale showcased a fantastic array of Art Nouveau and Arts & Crafts pieces, and overall, it was the ceramics took my fancy.

I'm at the Pavillions of Harrogate Antiques and Fine Art Fair today and tomorrow, signing Miller's books and selling a variety of our new books, including the gorgeous new Arts & Crafts book. Along with this, the first in our series of handy pocket guides will be with me, on Art Deco and Porcelain. I will also be judging the 'Best Stand Award'.
The fair is on between Friday 31st October to Sunday 2nd November and takes place at The Pavilions of Harrogate, Great Yorkshire Showground in Harrogate. It's a fantastic opportunity to buy high quality antique fine art, porcelain, silver and furniture.
Among the many fine exhibits going on sale will be a range of fine jewellery from the Victorian period to the mid-20th century from several specialists including Brieve Antiques, Shapiro & Co, and Plaza. 1920’s and 30’s Continental porcelain figures will feature on the stand of Candice Horley, 18th and 19th century oak and country furniture on the stand of Melody Antiques and Persian and Oriental carpets and rugs from M.& N. Rugs Approximately forty-five specialist dealers will be taking part, providing a broad range of pieces for collectors.
Sue, who took over and relaunched this regular autumn event just three years ago, says, ‘We now have fifty specialist dealers from across the country with a vast range of period pieces and prices to suit every pocket, from £25 to £50,000.’
The Pavilions of Harrogate is part of the Great Yorkshire Showground, located just a few minutes from Harrogate town centre. It has ample parking and is well known for its many facilities, which include high quality catering and fine dining.
Doors open at 11am and the fair will close at 5pm. Admission is £5.00.
