Chorley's Auction Rooms


Antiques Roadshow – Friends’ Summer Lunch, Talk and Free Valuations at Chorley’s Auctioneers

The beautiful grounds of Prinknash Abbey provide the location of our Friends summer lunch which will be held at Chorley’s auction rooms. Before lunch, Simon Chorley and his team of auctioneers, will give an exclusive preview and talk on some of the highlights of their upcoming Country House Art and Antiques Auction. The auction will include many examples of good quality Georgian and Victorian furniture, paintings, ceramics and other antiques, as well as the pictured 17th Century silk needlework mirror frame estimated to fetch in the region of £8,000-12,000.

The Chorley’s team are also offering you the chance to find out more about your own treasured possessions, whether old or new, of commercial value or just sentimental value, by examining any items you want to bring along and providing information and advice. If anything is too large or too delicate to bring, why not at least bring a photograph of it to show them?

Coffee will be served on arrival and there will also be a glass of wine served with your buffet lunch. You can make your own way there (plenty of parking space) or via our coach service.
