Fake or Genuine? – Friends’ Summer Lunch at Chorley’s

Date(s) - 19th Jul 2019

Chorley's Auction Rooms


The beautiful grounds of Prinknash Abbey once again provide the location of our Friends’ summer lunch at Chorley’s auction rooms. Before lunch, enjoy a chilled welcome drink while Simon Chorley and his team test your wits with a lively session to discover the fakes and genuine items in a selection of interesting objects. You will be able to get involved, in teams, in handling items and deciding whether something is genuine, what it is, how much it is worth etc. There will also be a chance to view the `country house` items in the forthcoming auction.
Chorley’s also offer a free valuation service. You are welcome to bring in an item from home and discover more about a treasured possession. If anything is too large or too delicate to bring, why not at least bring a photo of it to show them?
A buffet lunch with wine will be followed by coffee or tea. You can make your own way there (plenty of parking space) or via our coach service (see below).
Chorley’s is one of the most prestigious auction companies in Gloucestershire and is a major supporter of the Friends’ Newsletter. We really do hope you can join us for our Summer Event.
