Search your attics for heirlooms as Antiques Roadshow is set to be filmed at Audley End House.

The BBC show has announced its 2016 schedule, with the English Heritage Property welcoming presenter Fiona Bruce and her entourage of antique experts on Thursday, May 26.

It will be the second show of the series, which sees more than 30 experts on hand to offer free advice and valuations of heirlooms, household treasures and car-boot sale finds.

Fiona Bruce, presenter of Antiques Roadshow, said: “The best part of working on Antiques Roadshow is that we never know who or what is going to turn up on the day. The visitors, the objects they bring, their stories and the location all combine to make a fabulous experience that we aim to capture for the viewers. If you are a fan of Antiques Roadshow, curious to see behind the scenes, or just fancy a day out, I would urge you to dig out your treasures and come along – we’d love to see you.”

Simon Shaw, Antiques Roadshow executive producer, said: “The filming venues for 2016 are some of our most beautiful and historic yet. We will be covering the country, visiting spectacular locations, unearthing treasures and welcoming thousands of visitors for a great, free day out. Our team of experts and Fiona love nothing better than hearing people’s stories and seeing what items they bring, so we hope as many people as possible come and enjoy what our visitors consistently tell us is a fantastic day out.”
