Antiques Roadshow expert to give talk
A FAMILIAR face from BBC's Antiques Roadshow will give a talk in Crosby to reveal some of the exciting items he's seen over the years.
Marc Allum, who has appeared on the popular daytime show since 1998, will tell some tales at a meeting of the local Arts Society, to be held at St Michael's Church Hall on Wednesday, October 10 at 2pm.
During his time on the programme, Marc has been asked to evaluate a wide range of items, including Neil Armstrong`s camera and Napoleon`s briefcase, so it`s no surprise that he lists “all things strange” among his interests.
Marc has also made a study of the Grand Tour, the continental travel that was an essential part of a young aristocrat`s education in the 17th and 18th centuries.
Many treasures were brought back to Britain at this time, among them the collection once housed in Ince Blundell Hall and now in Liverpool Museum.
The title of Marc’s talk is entitled ‘Collecting: The Grand Tour’, and anyone who wishes to attend is welcome. For non-Arts Society members, it will cost £6.
