Seeking Treasures at the Staffordshire Regiment Museum!

Wed, 09/30/2015 - 13:59

On Friday 9th October a team of valuers from Hansons Auctioneers and Valuers will be coming to the Staffordshire Regiment Museum.

These expert valuers will be at the Museum from 10am to 2pm and are available to value items brought in by the public, in return for a small donation to the museum of £1 per item (or £5 for a collection).

Joining the valuers on the day will be militaria and coin experts, and, schedule permitting, TV personality and antiques expert Charles Hanson.

Charles is a regular of BBC favourite Bargain Hunt, and owns Derbyshire auctioneering house Hansons Auctioneers and Valuers.

The Staffordshire Regiment Museum is a wonderful spot for a valuation day. This site is steeped in history, and is a great day out in its own right.

The Museum holds fascinating collections including medals, uniforms and recordings of real WW1 soldiers talking about their experiences. Outside you’ll find military vehicles and the Museum’s astonishing WW1 trench system. There’s plenty of free parking and the whole site is wheelchair and buggy accessible.

 The Staffordshire Regiment Museum can be found at DMS Whittington, Whittington, Lichfield, WS14 9PY. Telephone 01543 434394 or go to www.staffordshireregimentmuseum.com for further details.
