Do you have an interesting item that you’d like to sell? If so, you’ve come to the right place…


BBC1’s The Bidding Room is opening its doors for a brand new series. Set in a theatre in the heart of Edinburgh, a group of expert dealers will attempt to outbid each other to buy extraordinary items brought in by the public. Nigel Havers welcomes people with an item they’d like to sell, introducing them to a valuation expert who gives them the specialist information they need to drive a hard bargain. Tooled up with this information, Nigel guides the sellers through to the bidding room, where the five eager dealers square up to spend their money.
