Programme producer Robert Murphy said: “We are looking forward to a bumper turn-out at the National Botanic Garden and can’t wait to see what kind of cherished objects emerge from the attic. It’s a great family day out and you can see how we make one of BBC One’s most popular programmes.”

The Garden’s Head of Marketing, David Hardy, said: “This is fantastic news for the garden, for Carmarthenshire, and for Wales.”

Antiques Roadshow is one of the BBC’s most popular factual programmes with around six million people regularly watching on Sunday evenings.
Each Roadshow event attracts thousands of people, who come along to find out if they own a missing masterpiece and discover the priceless history of their items. Around 15,000 items are valued at each show by Roadshow experts, from which around 60 items are filmed for inclusion in the show.

Fiona Bruce has presented the show for the past 12 years: "So much of what you see on the Antiques Roadshow is about the story of an object and its owner as much as about its value. We are never short of people bringing along items that tell a story which can be very exciting, poignant, funny, or the object can tell us something about ourselves. Even after all these years, people still have the most amazing things tucked away in their attics and garages, and I can’t wait to see what they pull out of their bags and trolleys in 2019."

Entry to the show is free, everyone is welcome, and no tickets or pre-registration is required. There is a £5 per car parking charge.
