Got a hidden treasure in the loft, or just want to be there gasping in the crowd as someone realises they've been sitting on a fortune for years?

You can be part of the Antiques Roadshow by heading along to a filming day for the popular BBC One series.

The Sunday night programme welcomes fans to bring along their heirlooms and curiosities for valuation by a team of experts, and even if you don't have any antiques at home it looks like a great day out as the show visits stately homes and beautiful gardens for filming.

If you want to be in the crowd of an episode, or even get the chance of having an item featured on the show, you'll need a ticket to an Antiques Roadshow filming day.

Although it's essential to have a ticket if you want to be there in person, they are free - you'll just need to apply in advance for the venue you want at the BBC show's ticketing partner, Lost in TV.

Fans can choose to go for an appraisal ticket if they'd like to have something valued, or a spectator ticket if they just want to soak up the atmosphere.

This year, the BBC are asking people to send in photos and information about their items in advance at a Share Your Story link, to help them choose what to look at on the day.

Information on the series website reads: "In addition to antiques and family heirlooms we are also keen to hear about more modern treasures – everything from retro toys to movie and music memorabilia, from mid-century furniture to vintage fashion, from designer handbags to rare trainers.

"We will continue to consider items brought along on the day, but you will need a ticket for an appraisal."

Where is Antiques Roadshow filming in 2024?

As usual, the new series will film over the summer to give viewers those glorious shots of outdoor valuations in beautiful gardens.

Host Fiona Bruce and her team of experts will travel the length and breadth of the UK looking for treasures, so it's worth checking whether there will be a location near you to apply to.
