Bring an item and get it valued while enjoying Drinks Reception, a short talk from Thomas Plant and dinner in the Officers Mess, Denison Barracks, Hermitage. Thomas and his team will provide valuations during breaks between courses.
Each guest or couple is invited to bring one item for valuation. Guests will be given a raffle tickets.
During the breaks between courses Thomas will select raffle tickets at random to decide which items will be valued.
Once an item has been selected the owner will be invited to bring the item to Thomas for valuation. Thomas will invite the owner to tell the audience a little about the item before it is valued (in a similar format that is used at the Antiques Road Show). A camera will be set up so that the item can be displayed on screen for the audience to see.
