TV VIEWERS will get the chance to see Erddig on screen this weekend when the Wrexham stately home is featured on BBC's Antiques Roadshow.

More than 5,000 visitors flocked to the National Trust property last July, bringing their family treasures for presenter Fiona Bruce and the team of experts to value.

BBC publicist, Pamela Parkes, said: "It was a memorable day at Erddig. Thousands of people came along and brought some fantastic treasures and family memorabilia. We filmed enough to make two very special programmes from Erddig, the first will be aired on BBC One on Sunday, January 13 at 7pm."

Over 100 volunteers worked throughout the day in soaring temperatures to ensure the show was a success, including 100-year-old Joan Capel, the National Trust’s oldest volunteer, who enjoyed a special meeting with Ms Bruce.

Jamie Watson, Erddig general manager, said: "It has been wonderful working with the BBC on one of the country's best-loved TV programmes.

"It has been a fantastic opportunity to showcase the property and I must say a huge thank you to our team of staff and over a hundred volunteers who've helped make the day a success."

The show’s experts had the opportunity to see an exciting array of treasures, including a leather jacket worn by Daniel Craig during filming as James Bond and two sketches by Wales’ most famous artist Kyffin Williams. The day also saw a signed personalised letter from Elvis Presley and a Victorian rowing machine.

Other highlights on the day included an appearance by the Royal Welsh Fusiliers, who kicked off the event in the morning by bringing their mascot Llywelyn the goat, and seeing Ms Bruce take a cycle ride on the home's original Penny Farthing.

National Trust operational risk consultant, Nick Howells, who volunteered to help the Erddig team on the day, said: “The garden team had been working around the clock to prevent the summer bedding scheme from wilting in the sunshine but for the Antiques Roadshow, we were all working to prevent visitors from wilting.

“I refilled the 40 litre water carrier that I was using 25 times - that’s one thousand litres of water!"

Justin Albert, National Trust Director for Wales, added: “We’re delighted that once again, BBC Antiques Roadshow has chosen another one of our special places in Wales for this series.

“From country houses, to coastal walks and countryside spaces, we pride ourselves on a warm Welsh welcome, which, judging by the feedback we’ve received, both visitors and the BBC team enjoyed.”
