Newby Hall and Gardens near Ripon is set to appear on BBC’s Antiques Roadshow this weekend.

Filming for the programme took place at Newby Hall last August, and will be broadcasted on BBC One this Sunday (18th April) at 7pm.

First broadcast in 1979, the Roadshow remains one of the most popular factual programmes on BBC One with around six million people regularly tuning in.

Antiques Roadshow editor Robert Murphy said:

“Newby Hall was selected as an Antiques Roadshow location because of its incredible house, award-winning gardens and collection of stunning Roman statues. We were delighted to feature some of Newby’s collection in one of Fiona’s games, which will make a really special film.”

Presenter Fiona Bruce, who is filming her 13th series of Antiques Roadshow, said she was delighted to be at Newby Hall:

“Normally we welcome around 5,000 people to each Antiques Roadshow, but of course in these extraordinary times we will have to do things very differently. We’ve come up with a new way to safely film the show yet still bring you amazing items and stories.

“We’ve had a wonderful time at Newby Hall filming some stunning items in the blazing sunshine and pouring rain! Our experts have seen some really intriguing and valuable objects and I can’t wait to see the finished programmes.”

Richard Compton, Chairman and CEO at Newby Hall, said:

“We are honoured that the Antiques Roadshow has chosen Newby Hall & Gardens as one of their filming locations for 2020. We are very much looking forward to showing off our beautiful corner of North Yorkshire to all the viewers of this flagship programme!”
