  1. Timecrashers – Channel 4 at Haddon Hall

    Leave a Comment

    Back in March, we welcomed the team from Channel 4 to film a new series called ‪#‎Timecrashers‬ – did any of you catch the first episode last night?

    Hosted by Sir Tony Robinson and social historian, Dr Cassie Newland, the show ‘crashes’ ten celebrities into different eras, the first one being Elizabethan. It was great fun having the hall buzzing full of lords and ladies, maids and squires and the rooms being dressed in period style looked amazing. It even smelt like 1588! The celebrities did a marvellous job and worked so hard, and yes, they really did sleep in the hall!

    For those of you that didn’t catch the show, you can view it online here: and for those of you unable to stream British TV (and everybody else too!), here are a few press shots.

    A little sneak peak of next week’s installment, also filmed at the Hall, features a Medieval Joust- tune in to Channel 4 on Sunday at 8pm!
