The Antiques Roadshow in Sussex.
The Antiques Roadshow is coming back to Sussex in 2017, stopping off a while during its 40th Anniversary celebration series. Stopping off at Nymans Gardens near Haywards Heath, Sussex on Thursday the 8th of June. It is not the first time for the Antiques Roadshow in Sussex. In the past the Antiques Roadshow has also visited Brighton, Crawley, Christs Hospital and the Weald and Downland Museum in Sussex. The Antiques Roadshow is also stopping in 10 other locations during its 40th Anniversary celebrations, but hey I live in Sussex so I will probably nip down to Nymans.
Nymans Gardens, Sussex
The Glorious House and Ruins at Nymans Gardens is managed and curated by the National Trust. Beautifully set in a 275 acre garden which manages to be both intimate and also expansive. It was one of the first Gardens bequeathed to and taken on by the National Trust. Its local area micro climate supporting many exotic shrubs from temperate regions around the world.
Nymans Gardens is very highly rated on Trip advisor with an overall rating of 4.5 stars. The garden is definitely worth several visits over the course of a year due to the seasonal variations. The many varied and distinctive seasonal changes in colour are an absolute joy to behold.
The Antiques Roadshow
The 40th Anniversary of the Antiques Roadshow will be presented for the 10th Time by Fiona Bruce. “As well as the 40th series of Antiques Roadshow, it will be my own 10th series on the programme next year. Where does the time go? Meeting fantastic people, hearing their stories, going to fabulous locations and, best of all unearthing hidden treasures clearly makes the time fly. I hope as many people as possible come along to see us in 2017 at one of our fascinating venues. It’s a great, free day out, you can see behind the scenes of one of your favourite shows, and, who knows? We’d love to make your 2017 extra memorable with surprising news about your treasures.” Said Fiona Bruce.
