What Am I Bid? – Philip Serrell in conversation with Paulette Edwards
Firth Hall, Firth Court,, Sheffield
Friday, 29 Oct 2021 7:30pm to 8:30pm
Philip Serrell is an antiques expert and a familiar face on BBC TV programmes including Bargain Hunt and Flog It!. When Philip gave up teaching to become a professional auctioneer, he thought he was embarking on a sensible and safe career… How wrong he was. In What Am I Bid?, which follows previous memoirs, An Auctioneer’s Lot and Sold to the Man with the Tin Leg, he brings his story up to date. From dodgy cars to fakes in the saleroom; angry livestock, mangled silverware and muddy experiences in local markets, Philip has been there, done that and got the hoofprints on his suit to prove it.
‘A sparkling memoir… Serrell is laugh-out-loud funny.’ Roger Lewis, Daily Mail
Philip will be in conversation with Paulette Edwards.
Paulette Edwards is a broadcaster on BBC Radio Sheffield.
