A CITY & VILLAGE TOURS DAYTRIP

FINDERS KEEPERS AN ANTIQUES CHALLENGE

An entertaining antiques hunting game in the company of an expert from ITV's David Dickinson's Real Deal and Secret Dealers. Includes morning coffee and a very nice two-course lunch with coffee.


Every now and then a genuinely different opportunity comes along for groups - something to really engage and entertain your members. Finders Keepers is our antique hunting game played in the company of a TV antiques expert from David Dickinson's Real Deal and, or, Secret Dealers.


Our fun and entertaining game hosts are Honey with the Money Alison Chapman, debonair James Layte, erudite and entertaining Jo Brayshaw and talented live wire Karen Dalmeny. The TV antiques expert greets your group in a choice of destinations including Norfolk, Kent, Suffolk, Northumberland, Oxfordshire, Surrey and Hampshire.


Over morning coffee and biscuits you'll be given a game briefing with lots of tips from how to spot treasure to how to haggle. The celebrity antiques expert will show you some of the bargains they've bagged locally and they'll give each player a crisp ten pound note. It's an entertaining start to a really engaging day out.

Adults & Seniors: £49

Your folk can shop individually or team up in pairs, threes or fours etc and pool their money to go treasure hunting. All locations have an antiques arcade and, or a selection of antiques and charity bric-a-brac shops within easy walking distance. You'll have about 90 minutes to shop before returning to the pub for a two-course lunch. It looks easy enough on the telly, but how will your group do in real life?

 Your members return to the pub for a tasty two-course lunch, after which coffee is served and it's time to put your finds on the table! The celebrity expert will look at every object in turn and tell you all what you've got and if its worth anything. This is a fascinating and very entertaining sixty minutes during which you will really appreciate the depth and range of the expert's knowledge.  And you'll find out why these natural showmen and women were chosen to be on the telly because they are great fun to be with. Expect lots of laughter and big smiles all round.

If no one has unearthed a priceless Ming vase the winner will be chosen for the most unusual or quirky object or the best find in terms of potential profit. For the winner or the winning team there is great Kudos and a shiny trophy to take home and everybody gets to take home what they bought - it's Finders Keepers you see!


Timings

Aim to arrive for morning coffee and the celebrity game briefing at 10.30am, shop from 11.30am, have your two course lunch at 1.00pm and enjoy the judging over coffee from 2.30pm. You'll be ready to head home at 3.30pm.
