Antiques Roadshow

Our visiting expert – Nigel Kirk

On a cold, wet Friday evening in February 2020 RDCS members, many accompanied by friends and family, enjoyed a convivial evening of a delicious fish and chips/jacket potato supper followed by an enlightening and entertaining talk by Nigel Kirk, from the  local fine art auctioneers Mellors & Kirk. Nigel was impressed by the selection of items brought to be valued by audience members and over an hour or so talked about each one in turn –  its age, its history in relation to the development of similar objects and its value. There were some surprises, both pleasant or disappointing,  but everyone went away knowing a little more about  their item and hugely impressed by the depth and breadth of Nigel’s knowledge. A very entertaining evening was had by all.
