Antiques Roadshow at Cheltenham Town Hall.

It all started really with wife's love of watching antiques programme's on tv, so when I heard the famous programme was coming to our town we had to go.

So I text my mum and asked if In could borrow a couple of historical items I remeber from my childhood.  So on having look through the attic and under the bed we went armed with 6 Charles Dickins books, a lovely postcard collection of pre first world war cards that were sent to my great great grandmother.  We also had my favourite an albumn of beautiful drawen images and finally a bone handled and silver plated fish knife and fork set to take.

I was very excited as we saw Fiona Bruce, Henry Sandon who to me are synonymous with the programme. For the knife set we had advice from Margie Cooper who told us it is as lovely set-up sadly in today's environment it would not get more than £30 but it was dated 1918 which is amazing, even mum didn't know it was this old.

With the books we took we meet the incredibly knowledgable Michael Welsh who said the books again had no real value but are great family peieces.

So to sum up a brilliant way to spend as few hours.
