Television antiques expert Tim Wonnacott will participate in a valuation roadshow event to raise funds and awareness for a Cambridgeshire based charity. Sworders Fine Art Auctioneers will host the event from 10.30am-3pm on Friday 15 March 2019 in aid of Tom's Trust, founded in 2011 to support children with brain tumours and their families. The event takes place at Wyddial Hall, a stunning Grade II listed 16th century mansion situated north-east of Buntingford, East Hertfordshire, set in landscape by Humphrey Repton.

Tim’s talk, held twice during the event in the morning and afternoon, will be titled Auctions and Anecdotes - an entertaining journey through his life as a professional auctioneer of many years.
Meanwhile Sworders' experts will be on hand to offer complimentary auction valuations across a range of specialisms, including Asian art, ceramics and glass, furniture, jewellery, watches, luxury goods, paintings and prints, silver and works of art.
