BBC2’s The Repair Shop filmed at Museum

BBC2’s new series, The Repair Shop, begins on Monday 27th March at 6.30pm, showing every week day for three weeks, offering an antidote to throwaway culture! See what wonderful treasures have been found in homes across the country and how the team gives then new life.

In the first episode, see three cherished family heirlooms brought back to life; a timepiece with huge sentimental value, a 50-year-old wooden flying fish and an 80-year-old instrument played in the bomb shelters of London during the Blitz.  For details of upcoming episodes see the BBC iPlayer.

Filmed at the Museum from January to March 2017, the Ricochet film crew have been a pleasure to work with. Court Barn is the star of the show and the Victorian smithy was also used in the repair of items.

The Repair Shop will be available on BBC iPlayer.
