Andy is the world’s most widely-published journalist specialising in glassware and has been the Antique Roadshow’s glass specialist since 2005. He started buying and selling antiques when he was 14 and is now a specialised glass dealer, running Britain’s largest antique and vintage glass shop in his home town of Rye in East Sussex. His third book, ‘The Decanter, Ancient to Modern’ has recently been published to great acclaim and he is currently researching a new book on Swedish glass.
Andy lectures widely and has a personal collection of over 30,000 pieces. Andy McConnell will talk about his life and times in ‘Beyond The Roadshow’ and will then appraise glass items which members of the audience are invited to bring along. Do you have a piece of glass you would like to know more about? All proceeds will go directly to support our local Citizens Advice which provides a home visiting service for people in Buckingham, Winslow and the surrounding area. This event is organised by BACAB, the charity which raises funds to support vital services in the community.
