Bring out your antiques! BBC Flog It comes to Trent Building

How much is that old vase of Great Aunt Doris’ gathering dust in your attic worth? Here’s a chance to find out when BBC One’s popular Flog It series comes to University Park next month.

Flog It is set to film an episode in the Trent Building on Friday 14 April and the producers want university staff and students to bring their heirlooms and treasures along for the free valuation day and the chance to put their finds up for auction.

You can bring up to three antiques or collectables the Flog It experts might be interested in selling after a free appraisal. Once valued, the owner and a team of experts decide whether an object is filmed and the item is sent to Mellors and Kirk Auctioneers in Nottingham for inclusion in their sale on Wednesday 10th May.

The BBC will be making four editions of the show featuring The University of Nottingham and they will be transmitted within eighteen months of recording. Paul Martin will be joined at the valuation day by on screen experts Charles Hanson, Caroline Hawley and Michael Baggott.

Andy May, General Manager, Nottingham Conferences: “ Through our offices based on University Park we manage a diverse range of  conferences and events, from internal day meetings and academic conferences all the way through to residential sporting events such as Corporate Games being held this Summer at The University of Nottingham. We look forward to welcoming the Flog It experts to the Trent Building further demonstrating the breadth of our conference and events offering here at The University of Nottingham”.

BBC Flog It will be in The Trent Building at The University of Nottingham, University Park, Nottingham, NG7 2RD between 9.30am and 4.00pm on Friday 14 April. The items selected for filming at the valuation day will go under the hammer at Mellors and Kirk Auctioneers on Wednesday 10 May.
