POPULAR BBC One antiques programme Flog It is coming to Gloucester.

The show, presented by Paul Martin, is now on its 13th series and an episode will be filmed at Gloucester Cathedral on Thursday, May 22.

Members of the public are invited to bring along up to three antiques and collectables they might be interested in selling.

Once valued, the owner and a team of experts decide whether an object should go forward for auction.

If the item is chosen it is included in a sale a few weeks later – hopefully when the auctioneers hammer falls its owners make a tidy sum.

Everyone who goes along to the valuation day will receive a free valuation – even if their antiques are not chosen to go forward for auction.

Louise Hibbins, series producer says “Paul Martin and the entire Flog It team are really pleased to be bringing the show to Gloucester Cathedral.

"We always receive a warm welcome when we come to Gloucestershire, the Cathedral will provide the perfect setting for our valuation day event; our experts are all looking forward to welcoming people along for their free valuations in such an impressive and important building.

"If you’ve ever wondered how much your boot sale bargains or clutter in the loft might be worth, now is your chance to find out.”

A Cathedral spokesman said “Gloucester Cathedral is delighted to be hosting Flog It and look forward to welcoming the team in May.

"Let’s hope the people of Gloucestershire have lots of hidden treasures waiting to be discovered.”

Paul Martin will be joined on the valuation day by Flog It on screen experts Philip Serrell, Catherine Southon and Michael Baggott between 10am and 4.30pm.

The items selected at the valuation day will go under the hammer on Friday, June 20, at 20th June at Moore, Allen and Innocent Auctioneers in Cirencester.
