Where is The Repair Shop located and who pays for the repairs?November 12, 2020
THE Repair Shop on BBC One sees experts repair and restore antiques to their former glory from furniture to paintings.
But where is it located and who pays for the repairs?
Where is The Repair Shop filmed?
The Repair Shop is filmed at The Weald and Downland Living Museum, just outside Chichester.
It's situated by the South Downs National Park, making for a picturesque location.
The 40-acre site is home to a collection of historic rural buildings and showcases heritage farming trades and crafts.
It's open to the public to visit and has reopened after COVID-19 closures.
The museum has won a number of awards, including The Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service.
The main workshop, where the experts greet families and work on their treasured objects is in The Court Barn.
The Repair Shop also uses the adjacent buildings, which are called The Wagon Shed and Stables.
This is where Dominic Chinea normally does metal work.
Who pays for the repairs at The Repair Shop?
Good news, the show pays for all of the repairs, making them totally free.
Rob Butterfield, head of factual at the show’s production company Ricochet, told the BBC: "We don’t charge for repairs.
"If people wish to make a donation to charity we’re very happy with that, but it’s by no means necessary."
