Behind the Scenes at Hollow Crown filming

On Monday I luckily heard through Facebook that Benedict Cumberbatch, along with other amazing actors such as Michael Gambon and Judi Dench were filming the next series of The Hollow Crown nearby! By chance, my daughter had an orthodontist appointment after school there, so of course we stopped by to have a good old nose.

 There’s nothing more exciting than being on a film set! We got to see Benedict Cumberbatch be crowned as Richard 3rd and all the tricks they do with smoke and lighting. The most exciting for me was seeing all the wonderful medieval costumes. I wanted to stare and stroke, but that would probably have creeped out the actors somewhat and result in me being removed.

I wasn’t allowed to take photos inside, but I took a few on the set outside – unfortunately I recently acquired a hand-me-down phone and I hadn’t got used to the camera settings so most of them are awfully blurred. Such a pity. I’ll try and go back later this week to see if they’re still there!

3 Days in Oxford – Day 3. The story of the photographs
November 9, 2016
We’ve now come to my last day in Oxford and after breakfast, I sadly checked out of the hotel and drove to the park and ride. I bussed into the city where I was dropped off near the bottom of St Aldates and began walking all the way up to a lovely clothes shop called Olivia May on Little Clarendon Street where it snowed heavily for about half an hour. Then on route to the Natural History Museum, the sun came out and it was so hot, I took my coat off (bloody British weather). Of course, I took lots of photos on the way……
The Glastonbury Festival Packing List
June 16, 2016
The tipis are all up and the crew camping fields are nearly full already, so it’s time to be thinking about packing for Glastonbury Festival if you haven’t done so yet. The old adage is still true: Don’t bring anything you wouldn’t mind leaving behind. Tent burglaries are much fewer than they used to be, but they still happen and always sleep with any valuables at the bottom of your sleeping bag. Never leave any valuables in your tent – make use of the property lock-ups. They are run by local primary school PTAs mostly, so small donations are appreciated. It’s now been twenty years since I first stayed at Glastonbury Festival, and even though I now live in Pilton, I still remember what’s it’s like to carry (or pull in a cart) all your stuff miles and miles from your car to your favourite camping field. So try and pack as light as you can! This is an updated list from the one I did a few years ago….
