On hearing that the production company “Hattrick” was looking for a location for a new TV series, written and staring Ben Miller (of Armstrong and Miller, Worse Week and Death in Paradise Fame, among many other achievements) which needed a village location with a Filling station, I contacted them and pitched Marden as a great location.
At the end of July, I hosted both the Production Manager and the Location Manager to a day in Marden, introduced them to all the other shop and inn keepers, walked everywhere including into our lovely Church, they loved it.
A “taster” show is now going to be filmed later this year, which, if successfully sold to TV, will lead to a series, with Marden featuring in all of them.
Lets hope it does for Marden what “Darling Buds of May” did for Pluckley!
I’ll keep you all posted as to how we progress.
