The Dulverton Antiques Valuation Day is back – with a competition!

Following the success of the first Dulverton Antiques Valuation Day in March, Adam Partridge (from the TV’s Flog It!, Antiques Road Trip and Bargain Hunt) and his team of auctioneers are returning to the beautiful market town of Dulverton for another valuation event – and a fun competition for all to enter!

Visitors will be invited to bring along their antiques, jewellery, fine art & collectors’ items.  For a donation of £5 (for a maximum of three items) the specialists on hand will give a valuation and history of the items that are brought along.  All items must be portable – in other words, small enough to carry! No appointments necessary, first come, first served with a simple ticketing system at the door. Refreshments will be available and the bar will be open.

There will also be a new fun competition at the event, when visitors will be asked to guess “WHAT IS THE ITEM?”  Three unique antique items will be displayed and competitors will be invited to write down what they believe the item to be and what was its original intended use.  The first person to guess all three correctly will win a bottle of wine donated by Dulverton’s Town Mills B&B! Thinking caps on! Will we need Fiona Bruce from The Antiques Roadshow to help us?!

Visit Dulverton is also promoting the message of “repair, reuse, repurpose, recycle” with other stalls at the event – including Oggies Music Shop, Tim Venning’s Workshop and the team from the Somerset Waste Partnership who will take donations of unwanted smart tech to recycle.  Somerset’s bright blue Fixy Van will be parked right outside the door!
