Historic venues make great film and TV locations, and filming can provide venues with valuable income and publicity.
Spencer & Fry understands the restrictions of the historic properties, as well as the needs of a production crew. Working in partnership with venue staff and location managers, we negotiate ways of making sure the shoot is a rewarding experience for all and doesn’t damage historically important interiors and objects.
Film productions include: Transformers: The Last Knight, Victoria and Abdul, Crooked House Wonder Womanand Phantom Thread.
TV productions include: The Crown(Netflix), Royal Recipes (BBC), Taboo(BBC), Action Team(ITV), and Trust(FX).
Proper cleaning of historic objects prevents their deterioration. However, using the wrong cleaning materials and techniques or cleaning too often (or not often enough) can lead to irreparable damage.
We have extensive experience of cleaning a range of historic objects, training people in the correct cleaning methods and creating conservation cleaning schedules.
Clients that we have worked with include: Syon House, Blenheim Palace and Farringford House.
