Cllr John Coombs, Spokesperson for the Arts, said:

“It has been fantastic to see our beautiful borough feature prominently in many hugely successful television and film productions in recent months.

“Richmond upon Thames has become a hugely popular location for production companies to use due to the borough’s stunning historical architecture and amazing natural spaces.”

When filming, the Council asks production companies to contribute to charitable causes within the borough.

Over the past three years over £85,000 has gone to local charities and organisations.

Despite the pandemic, there are a number of productions scheduled for 2021.

Following a period of shutdown in spring 2020, filming has now resumed in line with Government guidance.

These include regular testing, daily temperature checks, health declarations, working in bubbles and social distancing.

Productions are required to employ COVID-19 Supervisors to oversee productions on location.
