January 10th, 2020 - Finders Keepers - Antiques Hunt with Lunch

Antiques Shop

An entertaining antique hunting game in the company of an expert from ITV’s “Dickinson’s Real Deal” and /or “Secret Dealers”, which includes morning coffee and a two-course lunch.

We begin our trip with morning refreshments at The Red Lion pub in Hythe, Kent at about 10.30 a.m. Our celebrity antiques expert will provide a briefing with lots of tips on how to spot a treasure, how to haggle and will give each of you a £10 note!

After you have selected your lunch choice from the menu, it’s off to the nearby Malthouse Antiques Centre to begin your challenge! You have the option to work individually, in pairs or teams so you can pool your money and go treasure hunting. You’ll have about 90 minutes to shop before returning to the pub for a two-course lunch.

After lunch, our celebrity antiques expert will rejoin us, take a look at all the purchases and see if they are worth anything. 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 winning team, there is great Kudos and a shiny trophy to take home and everyone gets to take home what they bought – Finders, Keepers!

This will need to be an early start and due to the direction of travel, we’ll start the coach pick-ups in Handcross at the following times:
  • 07.45 a.m. – Handcross (Sports & Social Club)
  • 07.55 a.m. – Cuckfield (Whitemans Green Recreation Ground Car Park)
  • 08.10 a.m. – Burgess Hill (Civic Way)

We’ll be ready to head home by 3.30 p.m.
