What's that in the cupboard?

Tidying out? Discovered something dusty and unused at the back of the cupboard? Is the 'something' a thing of beauty, interest, or history? If so, perhaps you should head to Ightham Mote this Thursday, 16 June where BBC Antiques Roadshow will be filming. Entry is free, Ightham WI are serving mouthwatering home-made cakes, and although the queues might be long, the antique expert might possibly have some good news!

Worth the trip? Definitely . . . . and good luck!
