The BBC Antiques Roadshow was planning to come to Coventry Cathedral on 8th September, but with the Coronavirus still prevalent they have decided instead to record a socially distancing programme in the grounds of Kenilworth Castle. However they are still looking for Coventry people to come forward with their interesting items.
For the first time in more than four decades, the series will be filmed on a closed set with a small invited audience only, to ensure the safety of guests, the production team and the wider public.
Viewers are being asked to contact the Antiques Roadshow about their objects as soon as possible so the team can start planning the show. Anyone with anything interesting that they would like to check out and share should fill out a ‘Share Your Story’ form with the details of their objects. This year only people who have contacted them beforehand will be invited to attend the show.

So get the ladders out and check what’s in your loft. You might even find an original Coventry Society Membership card dating back to 1970!
