Fiona Bruce and the team of Antiques Roadshow experts will be waiting to welcome you, so dust off your family heirlooms and dig out those car boot bargains and bring them along for free advice and valuations to visitors.

The Roadshow will be filming at the home of Concorde – Aerospace Bristol. The new museum, located off Hayes Way in Patchway [BS34 5BZ], celebrates the city’s historic links to the birth of aviation and the development of supersonic travel.

At the centre of this new attraction is Concorde Alpha Foxtrot – the last Concorde to be made and the last Concorde to fly.

Last year, the programme celebrated four decades on the road with some truly amazing finds, as presenter Fiona Bruce explains:

“Can this year be even better than our last? We’ll have to go some way to top the most valuable Fabergé ever seen on the programme, a correction to Darwin’s theory of evolution by the great man himself and one of the best collections of show business memorabilia ever seen by our experts.”

“But I have every confidence we’ll do it and the thousands of people that come along to see us will pull some extraordinary things out of their bags/trolleys/bits of newspaper/suitcases/boats – and one year even out of a cart led by a dog. I can’t wait.”
