The return of a popular free pop-up valuation event has been announced.

Mitchells Auction Company's Pop-Up Valuations are set for an event in Grange over Sands.

Set to take place at Victoria Hall on Saturday (July 6) between 10am and 2pm, visitors are invited to bring along items, or even pictures if the items are too large to carry, for a free, no-obligation valuation.

"Our Pop-Up Valuations have proved really popular so we decided to hold another one in the south of the county and Grange is the ideal location.

"We’re keen to encourage more people to consider selling by auction through Mitchells.

"We reach buyers all over the world with our online sale catalogues and internet bidding which means we achieve the highest prices for the items we sell."
