More recently, James Rylands was lucky enough to be chosen as a guest on Britain’s first ever panel show about the Royal Family – A Right Royal Quiz.
An avid traveller and scuba diver, James recently helped Greg Stone with some underwater filming of Bermuda’s historical wrecks for National Geographic. Other notable ventures of James’ include his expedition to Canada, where he stood in as an auctioneer to raise money for some big global charities.
Perhaps the most exciting event in James’ career was overseeing the sale of a female Diplodocus skeleton at his auction house, in 2013. Excavated that same year, the 150 million year old skeleton fetched a whopping £400,000. The piece itself was 6 meters tall and nicknamed Misty. Summers Place Auctions went down in history as the first ever UK auction house to sell a large dinosaur skeleton.
For his unmatched knowledge of all things antique, James Rylands is a highly popular choice for private or corporate events which require an experienced and professional host.
