IF, like the Royle Family, the Antiques Roadshow floats your boat, then the Buccleuch Centre in Langholm is the place to be on Sunday, September 25.

For Eric Knowles, doyen of the popular BBC1 television programme, is bringing his own highly entertaining show Antiques Antics to the popular theatre.

Knowles, currently starring in BBC2’s Antiques Master, is one of those rare individuals who is able to share his extensive knowledge of his subject in a manner that is easily understood.

With more than 20 years working on the flagship programme under his belt, he has become the friendly face of what, for many years, was a business shrouded in mystery.

In Langholm, the first part of the event will feature Knowles, supported by slides, sharing some irreverent anecdotal reminiscences of a life in antiques.

The second segment is devoted to treasures brought along by the audience and selected by Eric during an earlier meeting and greeting session.

Antiques Antics with Eric Knowles begins at 7.30pm. Tickets, £14, from box office on 01387 381196.
