Ex­pert Mark’s talk time

Midweek Visiter - - News -

MARC Al­lum, who has been a fa­mil­iar face on BBC TV`s An­tiques Road­show since 1998, will be in Crosby to­mor­row (Wed­nes­day, Oc­to­ber 10) to speak to the lo­cal branch of the Arts So­ci­ety.

Dur­ing his time on the pro­gramme Marc has been asked to eval­u­ate a wide range of items, in­clud­ing Neil Arm­strong`s cam­era and Napoleon`s brief­case, so it`s no sur­prise that he lists `all things strange’ among his in­ter­ests.

Marc has also made a study of the Grand Tour, the con­ti­nen­tal travel that was an es­sen­tial part of a young aris­to­crat`s ed­u­ca­tion in the 17th and 18th cen­turies.

Many trea­sures were brought back to Bri­tain at this time, among them the col­lec­tion once housed in Ince Blun­dell Hall and now in Liver­pool Mu­seum.

The ti­tle of Marc`s talk is Col­lect­ing: The Grand Tour, and it will be­gin at 2pm in St. Michael`s Church Hall, on the cor­ner of St. Michael`s Road and Dowhills Road in Blun­dell­sands.

Any­one who wishes to hear Marc will be very wel­come, and the cost to non-mem­bers of the so­ci­ety is £6.

An­tiques ex­pert Marc Al­lum will be giv­ing a talk on col­lect­ing at Blun­dell­sands to­mor­row
