The BBC’s Bargain Hunt is set to film at the Antique and 20th Century Fair at Newmarket Racecoure later this month.

The Blue team will take on the Red team in the challenge with both having £300 and an hour to find and purchase antiques from the fair’s 200 plus stands of antiques, art deco and collectables on offer which they sell at auction hoping to make money with their bargain.

The presenters in attendance on Sunday, August 19, will be Anita Manning, John Cameron and Caroline Hawley.

As well as hundreds of stalls inside and outside, there will also be antique valuations, free valuation and appraisals, a restoration workshop and a specialist collectors’ room for stamps, medals, cards, coins and ephemera.

In addition there will be free parking and a full catering service on site.

Tickets, priced at £6 for traders and £4 for visitors, are available on the day.
