Now there are even more opportunities for NPT viewers to enjoy Antiques Roadshow! We’ve added half-hour episodes of the British version of the show – snippets of which are an occasional bonus on the American version – Sundays at 6:30 p.m.
Antiques Roadshow originated in the UK and like its American counterpart, the British version is filmed on location around the country, with stops at museums, cathedrals and historic homes and castles. The accents may be different, but the premise is the same: People hope to learn from expert appraisers whether they have trash or treasure on their hands. The items in question typically have a British provenance (one episode included a slice of Queen Elizabeth’s wedding cake from 1947!), but items from this side of the pond also appear, including a mask-wearing man with collection of Lone Ranger memorabilia.
NPT is offering one more treat for viewers who love antiques, gardens and all things British. We’ve partnered with the Antiques and Garden Show of Nashville to give away tickets to the 2018 event taking place Feb. 2 – 4 at Nashville’s Music City Center. Enter at wnpt.org/gardenshow for a chance to win one of 10 pairs of general admission tickets or one pair of tickets to the show’s four lectures – including the keynote address by Charles, 9th Earl Spencer, younger brother of Diana, Princess of Wales.
Our contest ends Tuesday, Jan. 30, 2018; winners will be notified on Wednesday, Jan. 31, 2018. Ticket retrieval details will be emailed to the winners. Limit one entry per person. Tickets to the 2018 Antiques and Garden Show of Nashville are available for purchase at antiquesandgardenshow.com.
