A popular antiques and fine crafts show will be hosting a 'free day out' in the Scottish Borders next month.

The BBC's Antiques Roadshow will be filmed at the Floors Castle in Kelso on Thursday 6 July, where members of the public are invited to attend for free.

Antiques and fine arts specialists will be on hand to give advice and valuations.

Now in its 40th year, the show was filmed for the first time on 17 May 1977.

The best part of working on Antiques Roadshow is that we never know who or what is going to turn up on the day. The visitors, the objects they bring, their stories and the location all combine to make a fabulous experience that we aim to capture for the viewers. 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!

– Fiona Bruce, Antiques Roadshow Presenter

People can turn up on the day, but those with interesting collections or items with an unusual story attached or large items of furniture, can inform the crew in advance on the website.
