I really enjoyed the show and the people, and plan to attend throughout the day in addition to my speaking slot.

More about Paul Martin

Paul Martin, who has presented Flog It! since 2002, was first discovered when he was interviewed about his passion for oak furniture by a team from BBC Bristol. The team was so impressed with his natural confidence in front of the camera that they signed him up immediately to present the BBC daytime antiques show.

He has travelled all around the UK filming the show and in addition has presented two series of Britain’s Hidden Heritage (BBC1), The Manor Reborn (BBC1) and Paul Martin’s Handmade Revolution for BBC2.

Paul lives in Wiltshire with his wife and two children who feature regularly, together with their smallholding on the BBC’s Countryfile Diaries. He also has an art and antiques gallery, The Table Gallery, in Corsham.
