Hit BBC show The Repair Shop looking for new items to restore to their former glory

Worcester Editorial 17th Mar, 2024   0

BBC ONE’S multi award-winning show The Repair Shop is on the lookout for more special items to restore to their former glory, as the show returns to the barn to film a new series of the much-loved programme.

Since launching on our screens in 2017, Jay Blades and the experts have saved more than 1,000 precious items and historical artefacts. Memorable fixes have included the iconic rocking horse, a Jewish Prayer Book that survived Theresienstadt concentration camp, a grip that was used to travel over on the Windrush ships and a 2,000-year-old Chinese statue.

The Repair Shop’s presenter Jay said he was very excited for the show to be returning for its 10th season.

“It’s incredible to think about how many fixes we’ve completed and we want your help to really uncover some items that will make a difference to someone’s family history.”

Executive Producer, Glenn Swift, added: “As well as the fixes themselves, we love hearing the very special stories that make those items quite so precious.”

The Repair Shop team are reaching out to a wide range of communities for series 10 to find more treasures hidden across the country that are waiting to be brought back to life at the barn.
