Dickinson’s Real Deal set to reach Stalybridge next month
On Saturday 10 October, RDF Television West’s cameras are set to turn their attention to West Hill School, Stalybridge. Heading to the said school would be a certain Mancunian antiques expert.
The antique expert is none other than David Dickinson. His programme is one of ITV’s most popular daytime shows. From 9am to 5pm, the Dickinson’s Real Deal team will be there to value your heirlooms – free of charge. If you’re lucky, you may get a chance to sell your items for cash on the day.
Now in its 12th series, Dickinson’s Real Deal allows members of the public to make a mint from their antiques. Instead of having them collecting dust, visitors can gain money on the spot from a dealer. Some could take a gamble at an auction.
David Dickinson said “It’s great to bring the show to Tameside! People of Stalybridge come along and get the Real Deal.
“I’m very much looking forward to visiting Stalybridge, a town with fabulous history”
The day is completely free of charge. No registration is needed and everyone who arrives with items will get a free valuation. Photo ID (for example Driving Licence, Passport or Concessionary Bus Pass) is required for valuations.
West Hill School is on the outskirts of Stalybridge town centre, though close enough for easy bus and train connections. The bus stop is yards from the school gates with Stalybridge railway station five minutes walk uphill along Rassbottom Street, up to Thompson Cross (opposite West Hill School).
