Local history month is launched at the September FEAST

West Norwood FEAST
Sunday 1 September 2013, 10am – 4pm

Launching the beginning of Lambeth Local History Month, come and join one of our local history guided walks or visit Retro Village for our very own trash or treasure antique valuations from the experts at Rosbery’s auction house.

Curios about your curios?
11am – 3pm, Retro Village, in the car park of Rosebery’s Auction House, 74 – 76 Knights Hill
Have you ever watched the “Antiques Roadshow” and wondered what your own belongings are worth? Well, now’s here your chance to find out. Experts from Rosebery’s, South London’s fine art and antiques auction house, are holding a free valuation event from 11am – 2pm at the Retro Village. From jewellery to pictures, furniture to ceramics, the Rosebery’s team will be able to tell you all about them. All you need to do is bring along your object or objects. If it’s too big to carry, bring a photograph instead.
