Check your attics and garages for hidden treasures – the BBC's Antiques Roadshow is coming to Norfolk.

The popular Sunday evening show, presented by Michael Aspel, will be visiting the Cloister Lawn at Norwich Cathedral on May 19, the second visit to the city since 1982.

Series editor Simon Shaw said: “The team are all looking forward to visiting Norwich. It's always exciting to see what will come to light on the day. We regularly see between 1500 and 2000 visitors on the day. Despite the high turnout everyone will get to see an expert.”

People with large pieces of furniture or other big items can send details and photographs of their objects to: Antiques Roadshow, BBC, Whiteladies Road, Bristol BS8 2LR or e-mail them to: antiques.roadshow@bbc.co.uk.

It may be possible to arrange to look at the item in advance and organise transportation to the venue.
