Birmingham TV & Film Location Walking Tour

Posted on 16 June 2012

Saturday 16 June 2012 – 11:00am & 2:00pm

Tour Meeting Place: One Colmore Row, Snow Hill Station

This approximately 90 minute walking tour, that formed part of the 2012 Flatpack & Still Walking Festivals, covers tales of con artists, soap queens, game show kings and even a phantom flan flinger.

Mark Wilson spent three months of 2011 on the trail of BBC’s Hustle and their filming locations around the city of Birmingham. Seeing his home city used as a London substitute led Mark to research other shows and movies that had previously used city locations.

To celebrate the release of the final series of BBCs Hustle on DVD, Mark has joined up with Film Birmingham to expand the festival tour and attendees will now be allowed inside one of the most versatile and regularly used filming locations in the city.

Join Mark and Sindy Campbell (Film Birmingham) on a discovery of the city’s rich TV & Movie past, present & future covering 50 years of film-making in the city.

The tour route is approx 1.5 miles in length and will take around 90 minutes to walk with occasional steep inclines/descents. The final stop of the tour will be indoors where you will spend approx 30 minutes. To book your place follow the link here.
