BBC Bargain Hunt Returns To The Warehouse Antiques & Collectables, Setchey, Nr. King’s Lynn, Norfolk

The Warehouse Antiques & Collectables, Setchey opened its doors once again and welcomed back BBC Bargain Hunt film crew, guests and celebrities.

The Bargain Hunt Team enjoyed the last visit in 2019 and 2021, so much that they asked The Clark Family whether they could return and this time they filmed another 2 episodes for BBC1 making it now 8 episodes!

The show kicked off with Charlie Ross introducing the ‘Red Team’ and the ‘Blue Team’ on the shop floor.

Each team was then joined by a celebrity antique expert (to be revealed when the first program airs in 2023).

Bargain Hunt is presented by a team of antique experts. There are two teams one red the other blue and both teams have £300 and one hour to buy antiques which they have to sell at auction and try and make a profit!

The teams were spoilt for choice as the Antique Centre has over 120 exhibitors/dealers, one of the largest in the UK with an immense choice of vintage, retro, paintings, stamps, silver, militaria, coins, models, books, jewellery, bygone tools, shabby chic and a vinyl shop.

Once the teams have purchased their antiques, the experts use the leftover money and go shopping. Their purchases are ‘bonus buys’ and then each team has to decide whether or not to take their expert’s item to auction. But there’s a catch! Just because it has been brought by an expert doesn’t mean that it’s going to make money - it’s a gamble all round.

The presenter and auctioneer discuss the chances of each item making or losing money for the teams before the sale. The auction begins and the teams get to keep the difference between what they spend on an item and the hammer price at the auction house, it can become very tense indeed!

The day was a great success and Grace Waterfield, Digital Marketer at The Warehouse Antiques & Collectables said “Welcoming the Bargain Hunt team back to film was delightful, with our wonderful Warehouse Taproom Bar & Restaurant available to use as the ‘green room’ everything went to plan. It was great to see the film crew again and we can’t wait to see the finished programmes”.
