Postponement of Roadshows due to COVID-19

The safety of our staff and our audiences is something we take very seriously.

In light of the Government’s recent advice on COVID-19 and in consultation with our venue partners, we have decided to postpone our filming days at:

Forty Hall (17 May)

Windermere Jetty Museum (9 June)

Stonor Park (23 June)

Bodnant Garden (30 June)

Culzean Castle (12 July)

At this point we plan to go ahead with filming at Christchurch Mansion (26 July), Newby Hall (31 July) and Coventry Cathedral (8 September) but as this is a rapidly evolving situation we will review on an on-going basis.​
