BBC TV series set to film in Halifax
BBC TV series Antiques Road Trip will be filming an episode at Halifax Mill Auctioneers on Sunday, October 17.
The cameras are filming from early on during their sale day, and intermittently across the auction proceedings themselves.
The Road Trip’s two antiques experts will be entering a number of pre-bought collectables into the sale with an unknown element as to how they will fare once the bidding starts, in competition with one another, to make the most profits from the day.
Halifax Mill’s auctioneer team don’t hold any information as to what types of items might appear from the experts, but if the Piece Hall’s Al’s Emporium experience was anything to go by where dinosaur poop was discovered and entered into auction, then the buyer audience on the 17th could be bidding on absolutely anything!
James Watson, lead auctioneer and owner of Halifax Mill, said: “For me and the team here on the Sunday 17th it will be an amazing experience no doubt - offering my own and our business’ appraisals of the Road Trip experts’ purchases will be a delight and it will be genuinely exciting to see how each item fares once the bidding starts.
“With our vendors/sellers in mind, this day could be an interesting opportunity to see how the experts’ acquisitions fare against any heirlooms or valuables that our locals choose to consign - getting a one-up on a televised antiques aficionado’s efforts shouldn’t be pooh-poohed. From my experience of filmings at other auction-houses, a number of buyers do seem to get somewhat of a bidding buzz from the cameras being on-site, so don’t miss out!”
October 17th’s filming will commence from 10am and the auction starts at 1pm - contact the team on 01422 649669 or via email to [email protected] if you’re interested in entering any goods/items for the sale, and/or keep an eye out across Halifax Mill Auctioneers’ website and Facebook page for any news.
