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!

Visiting Bath Fashion Museum
October 21, 2016
The good thing about Blogtober is that I’m managing to fit in articles that I’ve had in mind to write for quite some time. This is about my visit to the Bath Fashion Museum, which although doesn’t feel like very long ago, was actually in April! It was during Bath Fashion Week and I wanted to make the most of my day-trip, and as I was going to a talk by Livia Firth in the same building, I thought I’d quite like to have a look round the new exhibition called A History of Fashion in 100 Objects….

Looking for a car rental company in central Somerset? Review of KNW Self Drive in Wells
May 11, 2018
I’ll be honest, I really wasn’t sure whether to write this blog post. Being negative about local companies is not really the direction I want to take this blog. However, due to its recent anniversary, I looked back at my first posts, and they were mainly reviews designed to be useful to the general public. I like the idea of being useful. If no-one writes mundane reviews of things like car hire companies because they want their blog to look pretty and be a fun positive place (which is really what I want mine to be), then no-one is going to know that it might be worth looking at other places instead of KNW Self Drive to hire a car for the weekend….
