BBC Bargain Hunt is focusing in on Selsdon’s Wonka auction

BBC television auction show Bargain Hunt is coming to Croydon later this month.

Anita Manning: guiding auction teams at Selsdon

The TV cameras will be at Farleigh Court Golf Club in Selsdon on July 17, together with one of the show’s presenters, Anita Manning, for the latest auction conducted by Catherine Southon Auctioneers.

This will be where movie memorabilia from the film Willie Wonka And The Chocolate Factory will be under the hammer, together with another 500-plus lots of paintings, jewellery, furniture and ceramics. The auction starts at 11am.

Also among the items listed for the auction is a Mappin & Webb Ltd silver-plated tea set that was used in the original 1958 London stage production of My Fair Lady at the Theatre Royal that starred Julie Andrews, Rex Harrison and Stanley Holloway.

Bargain Hunt will be filming to see whether their four teams of contestants can make a profit from items that they have bought at a recent fair.

“As always, we are delighted to welcome Bargain Hunt to our auction, and we are thrilled that the lovely Anita Manning will be at the helm of the team,” said Catherine Southon, herself a television auction regular.

“The experts and contestants always buy an interesting range of lots which I shall be delighted to sell for them. I am sure it will be an exciting day.”
