2020 ROADSHOW TOUR UPDATE
AUGUST 26, 2020
In light of the continuing circumstances related to COVID-19 and considering current guidance and complications around holding large events in the coming months, WGBH and Antiques Roadshow have come to the difficult decision to cancel all 2020 Production Tour events.
In planning a production tour for the next year, Antiques Roadshow will follow advice from government and health organizations as future event dates and locations are selected.
It is not currently confirmed which cities and venues Antiques Roadshow will visit in 2021. We are hopeful that Williamsburg will be part of the 2021 production tour.
WHRO Public Media values your support during these uncertain times. You have two options:
(1) Hold on to your guaranteed admission, as we remain optimistic Williamsburg will be one of the 2021 tour stops.
(2) Request a refund. Please reply to this email with your decision or call 757-889-9499.
WHRO Public Media is equally disappointed about this news, but with all that’s going on around us, our first concern is the health and well-being of our members.
Stay safe and thank you for your support.
MARCH 17, 2020 — We were just informed Antiques Roadshow has postponed all of their 2020 Production Tour events. This means the event planned for Tuesday, April 28, in Williamsburg has also been postponed. We are hopeful they will be rescheduling the Colonial Williamsburg stop very soon.
About the Event
At the appraisal event, around 3,000 ticketed guests will receive free verbal evaluations of their antiques and collectibles from experts from the country’s leading auction houses and independent dealers. Each guest is invited to bring two items for appraisal.
The Williamsburg visit is part of the show's 2020 production tour. In celebration of the program's 25th season, the crew is making stops exclusively at distinctive, historic locations across the country.
“Holding events at these locations allows our cameras to film appraisals in and around places that are treasures in their own right, adding an exciting depth to our show,” said Roadshow executive producer Marsha Bemko. “I can’t wait to see what treasures we uncover in Williamsburg."
Producers plan to create three episodes from their stop in Williamsburg, and the shows will air in 2021.
