Antiques Valuation Day & Crafts Fair at Swadlincote Town Hall
The Heritage Trust are holding an Antique Valuation day in aid of raising funds for the Bretby Art Pottery Showroom in Woodville. Local Auctioneer Charles Hanson (Bargain Hunt, Antiques Roadshow, Flog It! and For What It’s Worth) and colleagues from Hanson Auctioneers and Valuers will be in attendance to appraise your antiques; all we ask for is a donation towards the restoration of the Bretby Pottery Showroom. There will also be tea, cake, craft stalls and some further information regarding the Bretby Art Pottery Project, so please feel free to drop in.
