I am one of the fans who love the Antiques Roadshow . On 13th June 2013 Fiona Bruce and the Antiques Roadshow team filmed in the grounds of the Royal Agricultural University (RAU) in Cirencester.
It was a nice opportunity to see our beautiful town to be on the spot as well as our University. As an employee at RAU I felt very proud to be able to be part of this event and had the chance to see behind the scenes.
Around 2,500 visitors turned up despite the bad weather, and some of Britain’s leading antiques and fine arts specialists offered free advice and valuations to visitors for their collectibles and antiques.
My colleague was able to show two of her oriental objects, and said the story behind them in a very interesting and amusing way. It was fascinating to watch the whole filming process and witnessed something like that. I was very impressed by the crew and how well co-ordinated and friendly they were. I am looking forward to see the final programme which will be shown on BBC One sometime in autumn.
It was well- worth waiting to see the Antiques Roadshow and it was truly a memorable day!
