LOCAL residents are being encouraged to dig out their antiques and heirlooms as a mini version of the Antiques Roadshow is due to return.

On Saturday, May 10, Eric Knowles, who has appeared on the BBC programme, will once again demonstrate his skills and explain the mystery of the world of antiques during a two-hour show at the Galtres Centre, in Easingwold.

Prior to the show Eric will give a free valuation for as many people as possible and during the final part of the show he will discuss some of the items.

Pre-show valuations start from 6.30pm with the show beginning at 7.30pm. Tickets are £18 and are available from the Galtres box office. For more information, phone 01347 82247.
