NEW TV series The Great Auction Showdown will be filming with auctioneer, Paul Martin, in Stourbridge next week and locals are invited to take part.

The show, made by the producers of Yorkshire Auction House and Catchphrase, will be filmed at Stourbridge Town Hall between 10am and 5pm on Tuesday August 30 and Wednesday August 31 and people with fascinating, precious, unusual or one-of-a-kind items can take them along to be featured on the show.

Each week, the series will see Paul Martin go head-to-head with a rival expert as they compete to make the most at auction in a fun but fiercely competitive new format.   Filmed across the country, Paul and his rival will battle it out in the auction house to get the best prices and to win The Great Auction Showdown!

Paul Martin said: “I can’t wait to get on the road, meet local people and see what incredible items I’m sure we’ll find. This series is a competition – and one that I definitely want to win each week – so if you have something quirky, historical or exciting at home that you think could just be worth something, come on down.”

Executive producer Rosy Marshall McCrae added: “This series will be so much fun and we really want to speak to members of the public who maybe have a beloved or curious object they want to know the value of, or fancy making some cash at auction.

"We’d love to see unusual or one-of-a-kind pieces and can’t wait to see what precious antiques the area holds with its rich history.”
