Woodbridge Antiques Centre were really pleased to welcome the Antiques Roadtrip team again recently. This was their fourth visit to them and this time, they got to meet the lovely Catherine Southon.
Catherine, from Catherine Southon Auctioneers & Valuers Ltd in Kent, is competing against Fine Art and Antiques Expert Raj Bisram during the latest series, which is scheduled to air on the BBC in January next year. Each show features two competing antiques experts travelling across the UK buying and selling bygone items.
This week, they were in Suffolk filming one of the many legs of their journey. Travelling in a battleship grey MGB GT on a whistle stop tour, they visited Halesworth, Beccles, Thorpeness and Snape Maltings with Woodbridge as their final location before the auction at Bourne in Lincolnshire.
At the start of each week the experts are each given a budget of £200 to spend during their visits, to antique shops and centres, which will then be sold at auctions and any profit they make, is then donated to Children in Need.
This programme focuses on the beauty of the countryside and places of interest as well as the beauty of the pieces they are looking at. As there are so many lovely antique shops and centres to visit in the area, set among such picturesque surroundings, a trail around Suffolk would be a wonderful day out for any antiques or collectables enthusiast.
