An expert from BBC’s Antiques Roadshow will be on hand to value your collectables this weekend.

Lars Tharp will be at The Hepworth Wakefield tomorrow and Sunday to celebrate the art of collecting.

And he wants people to bring along their interesting objects so he can value them.

The event has been organised to coincide with Yorkshire collector Bill Ismay’s ceramics exhibition called Matthew Darbyshire: The W.A. Ismay Collection.

Mr Tharp will hold three events across the weekend.

The first one, called What Do You Collect?, is on tomorrow from 10am until 1pm and 2pm until 4pm.

This is a chance for people to bring in and show their collections, whether it’s football scarves, stamps, teapots or toys.

Then on Sunday, from 10am until noon, and 2pm until 3pm, his What Is It Worth? event will give people the chance to have their objects valued.

Mr Lars will conclude the day by sharing his experience of collections with a talk entitled Why Collect? between 4pm and 5pm. Entry is £5 for adults and £3 for concessions.

The other events are free.
