A major production company will be coming to Chipping Campden on the 28th July for approximately 10 days to film a new action adventure series.
The Town Hall and between six and eight car parking spaces will be closed for the duration of this period to allow the erection of the film set. Twelve alternative parking spaces have been arranged in The Kings Hotel car park and parking stewards will be on site to direct traffic to them as well as to the school car parks.
The High Street will be subject to a road closure order from 3rd August to the 4th August (inclusive) to enable the filming to take place. During this time the Town Square car park will be closed completely but again, stewards will direct traffic to alternative parking sites within walking distance of the town centre and make provision to enable less-abled people to access the town centre, despite the road closure.
Filming would commence from approximately 12:30 to 21:00, however there could be activity around the square from 08:00 AM in order to set up. The action primarily takes place on the pavement outside the Kings Arms Hotel, the Market Square Car Park, and some inside the Old Police Station.
The Country Market will temporarily relocate to the Market Hall on Friday 30th July and Friday 6th August.
Please be aware that the Town will be busier than usual as the film company will consist of a crew of approximately 100 people, working and, hopefully, shopping and eating!
Chipping Campden School car park will be available for parking free of charge during this period.
As a gesture of thanks to the local community for their cooperation and understanding during filming, the company will make a donation to recommended charities, please feel free to get in touch to nominate a charitable organisation.
