We were thrilled to welcome the production team and presenters of The Gadget Show a couple of weeks ago who were here to film an episode of the show. The episode is scheduled to be shown on Monday, 4th May this year. Put that date in your diary NOW.
Most of the filming was done inside Brinsop in our signature rooms – the Banqueting Hall, the Queen Ann Dining Room, Tirrells’ Sitting Room and Bailey’s Kitchen. But there has also been some outdoor filming too. They were blessed with fabulous weather all week and their last day of filming (Thursday, 19th March) was glorious wall to wall sunshine. They are doing a kind of Come Dine/Gadge With Me theme to the show.
Ali worked hard supplying three meals a day all week along with cake for afternoon tea and it was very much appreciated. Comments from the team were about how friendly the Brinsop Team is and how comfortable the house is with plenty of room for everyone to enjoy and not get on top of each other. Ali got a couple of autographs too! Find them on our Facebook page.
It is weird seeing the place transformed into a film set but just proves how fantastically versatile Brinsop is. The games room has been set up as the production office and dining room for the crew and has proved to be the perfect space for them with the grazers amongst them able to drop in for a bit of fruit or other snacks.
And the transformation of the banqueting hall has to be seen to be believed….. I don’t want to spoil the surprise – you MUST watch it.
On their last night they set up a go kart track around the drive to film – amazing – can’t wait to see it. Perhaps we should set up a film night at Brinsop and enjoy it all together.
A big thank you to The Gadget Show team for choosing us and commenting that the Brinsop team made them feel at home and were wonderful hosts. Che told us that he’d seen some early footage and the estate looks amazing and there is a verbal credit to Brinsop too. Come back soon guys!
