With the Antiques Roadshow team heading to Cromer today (May 24), we decided to ask our readers how much they really know about the show.

The planned May 24 visit to the north Norfolk seaside will mark the first time in the show’s 40-year history it has been broadcast from a pier.

The Roadshow normally attracts 3,000-4,000 visitors, many of whom will be bearing family heirlooms and oddities to be valued by a team of antiques experts.

Hilary Cox, North Norfolk District Council (NNDC) for Cromer Town ward, said: “What a wonderful opportunity for people to showcase their antiques at such an iconic venue.”

Fellow Cromer Town ward councillor Andreas Yiasimi said: “It’s a great opportunity to show the beauty of Cromer and North Norfolk to the wider world.”

John Lee, NNDC councillor for Suffield Park ward, added: “I’m delighted to welcome the BBC to Cromer and the unique setting of Cromer Pier.”

As well as Cromer, the Roadshow will be visiting Eltham Palace and Gardens in Greenwich, The Piece Hall in Halifax, Crathes Castle in Scotland, Erdigg in Wrexham, Wrest Park in Bedfordshire, MediaCityUK in Salford Quays, Buckfast Abbey in Devon and Aerospace Bristol in South Gloucestershire.
