Those wishing to attend are welcome to bring a few small items or heirlooms, and Steven may be able to tell you something about their age and origins.

Ann Lettis from Unlocking Warwick, the Court House volunteers, said: “Steven has been an auctioneer, valuer and dealer in Warwickshire for 30 years, and has many tales to tell about interesting items that have come his way.

"His talk will be at the monthly social ‘In The Ballroom’ organised by Unlocking Warwick and the Town Council, from 2pm to 4pm.

"There will be the usual tea, coffee and cake, and a quiz to round off the afternoon.”

Unlocking Warwick will also be holding a free 'Court House Tour' this weekend. Photo supplied by Unlocking Warwick
