The team behind BBC's WPC 56 paid the Chateau a very special visit to film some scenes for the show's third series.
If you’ve been watching WPC 56 this week, then you may well have spotted the Chateau! The show, which follows the story of the first women police constables to join the fictional Brinsford Constabulary, is filmed at various locations across the Midlands, and we were delighted to provide the setting for the first episode of the series.
The Grand Ballroom was transformed into the perfect backdrop for the Miss Birmingham contest of 1956, and we have some great behind-the-scenes photos of the episode being filmed:
It was a pleasure to host the WPC 56 crew at the Chateau, and very exciting to see the Chateau on television once again! If you missed any episodes of WPC 56 this week, they’re available to view on BBC iPlayer until 8 April.
