BBC antiques presenter David Harper is performing at Helmsley Arts Centre on Saturday, October 26 with his Unexpected Tales Tour.

The one-man theatre show, with ticket prices starting from £14, will treat audiences to the funny behind-the-scenes gossip from some of the BBC’s daytime and early evening shows, telling of his encounters with the famous faces he has appeared alongside for celebrity specials.

David has lined-up 24 dates which will take him from Settle to Somerset in the upcoming months.

He said: “You cannot believe what goes on in the world of art, antiques and in the making of television shows - you will not be expecting it.

“People like to hear stories of the TV disasters, the antiques profits, the bigger losses, the fakes and the fabulous.”

“I absolutely love the theatre and the atmosphere is fantastic.’’
