THE SWAN OPENS ITS DOORS TO PRIME-TIME ITV DRAMA
No need to adjust your sets – The Swan really is on a TV screen near you!
In September the village of Tarporley was revelling in the spotlight as our historic village was selected as one of the locations for filming of the popular ITV prime-time drama, Home Fires.
Several scenes were filmed in The Swan’s historic rooms, including the unique Hunt Room, home to the Tarporley Hunt Club, Europe’s oldest hunt club, since 1762 and host to a number of private events throughout the year.
The Swan was excited to welcome some of the programmes acclaimed cast, which includes British actresses Samantha Bond (Downton Abbey, Outnumbered) and Francesca Annis (The Little House, Cranford).
We would like to extend a huge thank you to our regulars who were so accommodating during the filming and, of course, to ITV for selecting us.
The second series of Home Fires is due to be broadcast next year 2016, so look out for The Swan’s debut appearance!
