Flog It! at Hull City Hall

BBC antiques series to be filmed at Hull in January

Flog It!, the popular BBC One antiques programme presented by Paul Martin, will be holding a free valuation day at Hull City Hall on Thursday, January 11.

The BBC production recently transmitted its 1000th episode and the 17th series is currently being recorded. The show regularly achieves an audience of more than two million viewers in its weekday afternoon slot.

Members of the public are invited to come along to Hull City Hall with up to three antiques or collectables they might be interested in selling. Once valued, the owner and a team of experts decide whether an object is filmed and if it gets sent to Golding Young Auctions in Lincoln for inclusion in their sale on Wednesday, January 31. Everyone who goes along to the valuation day will receive a free appraisal of their items – even if their antiques are not chosen for filming or to go forward for auction.

Flog It! has made many significant finds over its 17 series including, in North Lincolnshire, a rare Aboriginal Broad Shield that had been kept hidden away in a viewer’s wardrobe before being brought along to a valuation day — it went on to sell at auction for £30,000. Flog It! experts also discovered an unusual Royal Doulton Spook figurine in Blackpool which had been bought at a car boot sale for £2 – it went on to sell at auction for £5,000.

Presenter Paul said “It’s great to be bringing Flog It! back to East Yorkshire. I’m so pleased to be getting another opportunity to share this part of the world with our viewers. We always receive a warm welcome whenever we come to the county and I’m hoping plenty of people will take the chance to bring along their items to show us.” The BBC will be making four editions of the show featuring Hull City Hall and they will be transmitted within eighteen months of recording. Paul Martin will be joined at the valuation day by on screen experts Caroline Hawley, Nick Hall and David Harper.

BBC Flog It! will be at Hull City Hall between 9.30am and 4pm on Thursday, January 11 2018. The items selected for filming at the valuation day will go under the hammer at Golding Young’s saleroom in Lincoln on Wednesday, January 31 2018.
