The Antiques Roadshow is coming to Norfolk’s RAF Marham

Clear out your cupboards and meet Fiona Bruce and the experts at Norfolk air base between Swaffham and Downham Market.

It's time to raid the attic, check the garden shed and inspect the garage as the Antiques Roadshow is coming to Norfolk.

If you have bought a car boot sale bargain and you're not sure if it's a priceless collectable, then RAF Marham will be the place to visit in May.

The Antiques Roadshow team will be coming to the base to film an episode of the popular TV series and hopefully unearth a treasure to make someone's day.

Presenter Fiona Bruce will join experts at the station on Wednesday, May 23, and members of the public are being invited to take their prize possessions along for valuation.

It is four years since the show last filmed in Norfolk when Oxburgh Hall, near Swaffham, was the location.

Series editor Simon Shaw said: 'The team are all looking forward to visiting RAF Marham. It's always exciting to see what will come to light on the day. We regularly see between 1,500 and 2,000 visitors on the day. Despite the high turnout everyone will get to see an expert.'

The doors open at 9.30am and close at 4.30pm - entry is free and the entrance will be clearly sign-posted from the approach roads.

The new series will be presenter Fiona Bruce's fifth year with the Roadshow although it will be the 35th series for the popular show.

'Presenting the Antiques Roadshow is, for me, one of those rare and very lucky coincidences in television when you get to work on a show that you already love to watch. Exploring the human story behind every object is what makes Antiques Roadshow so fascinating. And everyone loves the agony and ecstasy of the 'what's it worth? moment. The AR isn't just about antiques - it's history, beauty and drama all wrapped up in one,' she said.

The roadshow filmed at Norwich Cathedral in 2005, Holkham Hall in 2006, Oxburgh Hall in 2008 and Somerleyton Hall, near Lowestoft, in 2009.

The Marham trip will be the only time the new series is anywhere in East Anglia
