Well, Saturday 30th July is your opportunity!
Dig out that watch your Grandpa left you; wrap up the paintings you bought at that car boot sale; dust off your old toys or books; rummage though the jewellery box; pack up your precious collections and bring them along to Burton Pynsent House between 10.30 and 4pm. There will be a team of experts in the outer rooms of the house, ready to examine your treasures and share with you their knowledge.
It doesn't matter if you don't have anything to show – you can still enjoy the day, as there will bacon butties (and vegetarian options) on sale for brunch or lunch, cream teas and an ice cream van as well as garden games and the rare chance to explore the grounds and gardens of this beautiful home.
Charges for entry are £5 per car or £1 per pedestrian or bike. Charges for expert valuations are £2 per object or £5 for collections. Proceeds in support of St Andrew's Church.
