antiques-roadshow-australia

Join three of the Antiques Roadshow’s most popular experts, Hilary Kay, Paul Atterbury and Ronnie Archer-Morgan as they tell their own personal stories behind the scenes.

Celebrate 40 years of BBC’s Antiques Roadshow.

Tales from the Antiques Roadshow will take us on a unique journey behind the cameras to discover how the award-winning television series is created.

Previously unseen footage will be screened and theatre audiences will share some of the excitement of the fabulous filming locations. See the most valuable and bizarre objects on screen as the experts remember the tears and laughter of the show’s extraordinary history.

A firm favourite on our TV screens, the series, through its wonderful objects, knowledgeable experts, interesting owners and occasional heart stopping valuations, turns the spotlight on human stories; the voice of history and humanity, sometimes touched with humour and pathos.

In May 1977 one of the world’s great television success stories started filming a pilot for BBCTV, and in 2017, in its 40th year, Antiques Roadshow is now bringing its stories to Australia in a live show specially created to celebrate this important milestone.

The experts will answer questions and invite the audience to test their own expertise by playing the Basic, Better, Best game, so popular with Antiques Roadshow audiences attending the filming days.

The stories will enthrall – from the First World War battlefields of the Somme to the era of Rock ‘n’ Roll, from the everyday to the priceless, each possessing a unique narrative earning them a place in history.

What are we collecting now?

How will future Roadshows value the folly or wisdom of our choices today?

Find out the answers when the Antiques Roadshow tells its story live on stage.

Enjoy the show on January 27 at Arts Margaret River. Our Margaret River Beach House is close to Arts Margaret River.

Bernard and his band will be celebrating the release of their new album ‘Civil Dusk’ in the stunning surrounds of Leeuwin Estate and will also bring to life his string of hits from the past two decades. Bring a picnic and enjoy a laid-back casual evening of summertime alfresco music on the lawns.

Bernard Fanning is an Australian musician and singer-songwriter. He is best known as the lead singer and frontman of Australian alternative rock band Powderfinger from its formation in 1989 to its dissolution in 2010.

Born and raised in Toowong, Brisbane, Fanning was taught the piano by his mother at an early age. During Powderfinger’s hiatus in 2005, Fanning began his solo music career with the studio album Tea & Sympathy. Powderfinger then reunited in 2007 and released two more albums before disbanding in late 2010.

While Powderfinger’s style focuses on alternative rock, Fanning’s solo music is generally described as a mixture of blues and acoustic folk. Fanning plays guitar, piano, keyboards and harmonica, both when performing solo and also with Powderfinger.
