Eric Knowles is one of those rare individuals who is able to share his extensive knowledge of the world of Antiques in a manner that is easily understood.

Now Diss Corn Hall offers the chance to get his opinion on your own antique treasures.

With over 20 years working on the BBC’s flagship programme The Antiques Roadshow under his belt, Eric has become the friendly face of what for many years proved to be a business shrouded with no small element of mystery.

In Antique Antics, the lad from Lancashire takes the wraps off a business in which he has been immersed for more than 30 years.

The first part of the evening is given over to what are quite often irreverent anecdotal reminiscences, ably supported by excellent images.

The second part of the evening is devoted to the audience’s ‘treasures’, 25 of which will have been selected by Eric during the initial pre-show meeting and greeting session and welcome party.

The show itself will start at 7.30pm. Members of the audience who would like an item valued (one per person) should arrive at the earlier time of 6.30pm.
