Antiques Roadshow Hits Town

Dust down your auntie's teapots, South Londoners, you could be sitting on a fortune! And you can find out for sure tomorrow when the Antiques Roadshow sets up store for the day at Dulwich Picture Gallery.

The Picture Gallery are clearly expecting a horde of hopefuls to descend on the big day, as they have hired marquees, portaloos, food stalls and a host of entertainments (including a stint from the Dulwich Ukulele Club) to keep people amused while they wait for their dusty heirlooms to be analysed and valued.

But surely the big draw will be the hope that hideous china dog that has sat on your mantelpiece since an ex-girlfriend bought it in a car boot sale in 1996 is really worth over a hundred thousand pounds. Turn up on the day to find out: Londonist expects a generous donation if you get lucky!
