Escape to The Country, Bargain Hunt…and King Arthur!

Escape to The Country, Bargain Hunt…and King Arthur!

We have been busy lately liaising with various press visits and PR opportunities for the county. Filming has recently taken place for both Escape to the Country and Bargain Hunt, with the later taking in Whittington Castle.

Visit England are arranging a press trip for a group of Australian journalists next month. They are visiting the county, with Ludlow being a particular focus, as part of a trip to promote the direct services air service between Australia and Birmingham.

And last, but certainly not least, we have been liaising with Visit Britain; providing information on King Arthur for a global campaign, in response to a new movie adaptation of the local legend due out in March 2017.

The Guy Ritchie directed ‘King Arthur: The Legend of the Sword’ stars Charlie Hunnam, Jude Law and Eric Bana, and is set to spark interest in the local King, who was of course born and bred in Shropshire! The previous 2004 film adaption staring Clive Owen & Keira Knightley gave a real boost to the county, so we have great hopes for this 2017 connection.
