About the Experience
Join Mark Hill, an expert on the BBC's 'Antiques Roadshow', and explore a London treasure trove. Mark will introduce you to a cast of antiques dealers,help you understand how the worlds of antiques, 20th Century  design and collectables work, point out bargains galore (and explain why they're bargains), and answer any burning questions you may have on this fascinating subject. When not assessing offerings from the general public on national television, Mark runs his own boutique publishing company and authors books on collecting and 20th-century design. A Freeman of the City of London, he is regarded as a real authority within his industry. That said, he's lovely, too. A more personable expert you couldn't wish to meet. On this SideStory Experience, you'll meet Mark for coffee and chat before taking a stroll through a London suburb that thrives on 20th century design, visiting (among other places) Alfie's Antiques Market – a grotto of dealers offering a vast selection of mid-century pieces, including trinkets, clothes, iconic  posters, and ceramics. For anyone interested in antiques, and mid-century modern in particular, there are few better ways to spend your time.
