The Travelling Auctioneers: Will Kirk and Christina Trevanion lead new BBC One series

The Travelling Auctioneers start date

The Repair Shop’s Will Kirk will join forces with Antiques Road Trip’s Christina Trevanion for a new BBC One show.


The Travelling Auctioneers will see restoration maestro Will Kirk and auctioneering expert Christina Trevanion take their auction house and workshop on the road across the UK.

Across the 15-part series, they will be seen unearthing hidden gems and turning unwanted items into winning lots that could sell across the globe.

A teaser for the show shares: “The Travelling Auctioneers sees the talented pair take their bespoke mobile auction house and workshop out on the road across the UK. Along the way, they unearth hidden gems and turn unwanted items into winning lots – with one lucky couple making more than £9,000 in the series.

“Sifting through one family home at a time, Will and Christina first need to identify the items with the biggest selling appeal. Christina then calls on her auctioneer contacts and expertise, whilst Will uses his incredible craft and restoration skills to bring new life to neglected treasures – ready for a thrilling on-site auction at the end of each episode.

“Every member of the public appearing on the show has a fascinating, inspiring, or moving story to tell. Plus, as the cost of living crisis continues to bite, The Travelling Auctioneers provides a timely insight into how some unwanted, forgotten household belongings can be transformed into big-money auction items.”

The Travelling Auctioneers begins on BBC One at 4:30PM on Monday 31 October, with all episodes available to stream on BBC iPlayer the same day. The series will continue weekdays on TV.

Will Kirk said: “I’m thrilled to be part of such an exciting new project. Hopefully between Christina and I, we can open up the worlds of restoration and auctions to a wider audience and show people some simple tips to get their prized possessions in pristine condition.”

Christina Trevanion added: “It’s really exciting to be a part of such an innovative new series and working alongside Will.


“Whether it’s a cellar, a barn, a loft, or the back of a cupboard, I’m really looking forward to uncovering the hidden treasures so many of us have in our homes, and giving them a new lease of life – while making the world of auctions and restoration accessible to as many people as possible.”

The Travelling Auctioneers will air on BBC One Daytime and is being made by STV Studios.
