BBC Antiques Roadshow expert Marc Allum will give an entertaining and informative talk about the world of art and antiques at Torquay Museum on Friday 3rd February at 7pm, and guests are invited to bring along their own objects for Marc to cast his eye over. So take a look at what’s lurking in your attic – it may be a lot more unusual than you think.
Marc will bring his expert knowledge and humorous style to bear on a selection of weird and wonderful personal objects taken from his own collection, as well as pieces brought in by the audience. This will be an evening guaranteed to keep you enthralled, with fascinating insights into the world of art and antiques.
Marc is known as a very entertaining speaker and he has very kindly donated his time for this event, with the proceeds raised being used to care for Torquay Museum’s unique collection of 350,000 objects. Guests are very welcome to bring a small object which Marc may choose to discuss. Please note that Marc will not be valuing items.
