From Eric Knowles
To anyone interested in antiques

As the proud Patron of this wonderful Charity (Dementia Carers Respite), I wish to invite you to a fundraising event where every penny raised will go to give desperately needed respite to dementia family carers who spend 24/7 looking after loved ones.

The Celebrity Antique Valuation Day is a ticket only event and open equally to National Trust members and the general public on the 20th of June 2024 at Waddesdon Manor in Buckinghamshire.

Alongside me, I will have 4 colleagues who are TV personalities and experts in various specialities and ready to hopefully surprise you with the value of the articles you bring.

Valuations will be from 12.00 to 17.00 at the Stables complex of Waddesdon Manor and it will be for up to 2 items per ticket holder.
Valuation time slots will be given, so for the rest of day you can enjoy the beautiful gardens, visit the house and enjoy a nice lunch, or a snack and a drink.

At the Stables complex, you will also have the opportunity to meet expert restorers, bid in a silent auction for a two-night’s stay in a wonderful Grade 2 house in Cheltenham or simply get a raffle ticket. All the while being serenaded by soft relaxing music.

To buy tickets click here but if you cannot join us on the day please make a donation on this site.
For more information on the campaign click here where you can also donate.

This exclusive fundraising event is only possible thanks to the kindness and support from the Waddesdon Manor management team to whom we are hugely grateful.

This is a great opportunity for a lovely day at one of England’s most treasured houses and much more.

We expect tickets to be in high demand and available only on a first come first serve basis, so book your place now.
