We had a busy and diverse Sunday just before the snowdrop season starts. It started early, with the crew arriving for the shooting of a short film both inside and outside the Hall. The director/producer was local Stephen Gallacher, who brought in many of his contacts to shoot the film on a small budget, including his former drama teacher at Kirkham Grammar Stephanie Heney and family dog Bob. The concept was short and imaginative and many extras were asked to attend for the street scene. We were mostly lucky with the weather; it could have easily hailed on us. We are looking forward to seeing the finished product and were very impressed with the professionalism of everybody involved.
In the afternoon the Upper West Wing was transformed by Lytham Wedding Company to showcase their wedding services. The Upper West Wing is licensed for weddings, and we are taking bookings for ceremonies whilst the Georgian Hall is being restored in 2015-16, the afternoon showed the fabulous opportunities for couples wishing to tie the knot. There was fizz, popcorn, sparkling dance floors, cakes and even stuffed unicorns on show.
No day is ever the same at Lytham Hall.
