Time to start raking in your attic to find out if you are hiding a fortune up there!

The BBC has announced that the Antiques Roadshow is coming to New Lanark, the only Scottish venue for 2016.

Everyone is welcome to bring their treasures to the Antiques Roadshow filming day, and the BBC stresses that it is a great, free day out and no pre-registration, tickets or appointments are required.

The show has now been running for almost 40 years.

The show’s team of experts will visit the New Lanark World Heritage site on Thursday, July 28, to offer free advice and valuation to the visitors.

Presenter Fiona Bruce said: “The best part of working on Antiques Roadshow is that we never know who or what is going to turn up on the day. If you are a fan of Antiques Roadshow, curious to see behind the scenes, or just fancy a day out, I would urge you to dig out your treasures and come along – we’d love to see you!”
