One of the most beloved programmes on British television will be coming to Welshpool next week.

On Tuesday, July 19, BBC’s Antiques Roadshow will be visiting Powis Castle to film an episode in its traditional format – and tickets to come along and take part in the event have sold out.

The show sees presenter Fiona Bruce and the programme’s team of experts offer advice and valuations to visitors who are invited to raid their attics and bring along their family heirlooms, household treasures and car boot bargains for inspection.

Unlike previous years, their visit to Powis Castle is a ticketed event, so those lucky enough to have secured tickets will be able to enter for valuations from the team of specialists.

For more than four decades the Antiques Roadshow has remained one of the most popular factual programmes on BBC One with some six million people regularly tuning in on a Sunday evening.

Among the show’s most notable items that have been brought in during its history include a Fabergé flower ornament worth £1million. a guitar formerly owned by Beatles, a handwritten document signed By Elizabeth I, and a leather jacket worn by John F Kennedy.

Powis Castle has said that it will remain open as normal on the day of filming, but reminds visitors to expect the castle to be very busy and to bear that in mind when planning their visit.

A spokesperson said: “We will do our best to keep any disruption to a minimum, but you will be unable to access some areas of the garden if you have not been allocated a ticket for the Antiques Roadshow.”
