THE Antiques Roadshow is coming to the area next month.

Filming for the long-running BBC favourite, now in its 36th series, will be in Wentworth Woodhouse's grounds on September 19. Doors will open at 9.30am and entry is free.

"This will be my sixth year on the show and every week is different," said Fiona Bruce, 49, the show's presenter.

Visitors are invited to bring along their family heirlooms to show to the experts for advice and valuations.

Simon Shaw, the series' editor, said: "We can never predict what will come to light as every show being big surprises. 

"On behalf of all of the experts, we're asking the people of South Yorkshire to dig out their treasures."

The show attracted an average of six million viewers in its last series and unearthed some interesting finds, including a £10 jar bought at a car boot sale which turned out to be a 330-year-old Japanese creation worth £5,000.
