Gallery: Flog It attracts hundreds

Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery where they were filming Flog It. Presnter Paul Martin with L-R: Roger Harris 67 and Susan Leighfield 64 (originally from West Bromwich) with World War 1 medals.

 Birmingham Museum & Art Gallery was turned into a production set yesterday for filming of popular auction television programme Flog It

More than 500 people had started to queue before lunch, with fans waiting in line for around three hours to hear the values of a range of collectables. Experts James Lewis, Christina Trevanion and Thomas Plant were all in attendance as was the show’s host, Paul Martin. He said it was a pleasure to be in Birmingham Museum & Art Gallery.

Susan Leighfield, a retired council worker who is originally from West Bromwich, came to the valuation with her husband Roger to see what his collection of war medals may be worth. Years ago he put them up for auction with a £2,000 reserve but they did not quite make it – reaching £1,900.
