Marc Allum Antiques Evening

25 April 2017 – Marc Allum from BBC Antiques Roadshow

BBC Antiques Roadshow expert Marc Allum will give an entertaining and informative talk about the world of art and antiques at the Town Hall in Malmesbury.  Marc will bring along some of his personal collection to share with us, and you are invited to bring along your own items for Marc to look over. So have a search around the house for that object you always wanted to know more about. (Please note that Marc will not be valuing objects).

Tickets from the museum are only £10 (including a glass of wine).

This will be a popular fund-raising event for the Malmesbury Coin Hoard project so buy your tickets early.
