Those of you who have Sky TV will have the opportunity to see the Long Gallery as it has never been seen before when it appears briefly in “The Last Dragonslayer” – Sky’s family film on Christmas Day afternoon. It is based on a novel by Jasper Fforde, a popular childrens’ author.
The film was shot in May – some of you may have been aware of the disruption in and around Checker Walk (and thanks to our neighbours for their patience) – but we were contractually barred from publicising it at the time.
The Long Gallery was the setting for an orphanage scene at the start of the film; a further scene was shot in the Checker, but we were told that this would be “blink and you’ll miss it” moment and comes right at the end. If you have young family around on Christmas Day, why not watch the film – then next year you can bring them to see where it was shot!
