  • Churchill’s ashtray?
  • The rattle Queen Victoria used to amuse her children?
  • Ringo Starr’s drumsticks?
  • Darth Vader’s light sabre?

Your heirloom doesn’t have to be grand – it’s all about the interesting story behind it!

  • Was your aunt cleaning lady for Churchill during the war years?
  • Was your grandmother Queen Victoria’s nanny?
  • Was your uncle a roadie for the Beatles or prop-master for the original Star Wars films?
  • Maybe you have an object that is part of a family legend, and you want to find out if the story behind it is true!

Whatever the case we want to hear from you! And we might even help you find a dealer or auction house to sell your item and earn some cash!

If you’d like to get involved in Family or Fortune, use the uploader below to send to us:

  • A short video (no longer than one minute), or up to three photos, with you - and the object - telling us the story of how it came to be a family heirloom and anything else you know about it
  • Please note: If the item belongs to a family member, make sure you have their permission before sending in your video or photos
  • Applicants must be 18 or over.
