Filming at The Bulls Head in Lymm

Posted by Sarah on Monday, 21 July 2014 at 09:43:13

Filed under: Interview, General

Camera crews, extras and cast members have become part of the village over the last few weeks as the filming of After Hours, directed by Craig Cash, has taken place.

There are many well known faces amongst the cast, including James Tarpey (from the Brit film "World's End"), Ardal O'Hanlon (from Father Ted) and John Thomson, amongst others.

The story line revolves around a young 18 year old Willow Hannigan (Tarpey) who lives with his parents in a northern town called Shankley. He is feeling pretty low as his mates have left him behind to move on to university and his girlfriend has broken his heart by leaving him for someone new. The only thing that keeps him sane is listening to a local internet radio show "After Hours" run from a canal boat.

The program is directed by Craig Cash of Royle Family fame and we were lucky enough to meet Craig last week at the Bulls Head pub where they were filming some of the last scenes of the series.

We spoke to Gloria Kennedy and John Wright, the landlady and landlord of The Bull and asked them how they had become involved in the filming of the series.

Gloria said that filming had been taking place at the pub for four and a half days. The pub will feature in the series as Willow's local and it will still be called The Bull in the series. Gloria herself has a cameo appearance at the bar as one of the locals, so we need to look out for her when the series airs in 2015.

Filming has been taking place during the daytime at The Bull and the pub has been closed until 6pm, although drinks have been available in the beer garden. The production crew had been promising free drinks for anyone from 6pm if filming overran, but if you are hoping for a freebie you are unlucky as filming finished at the Bull last Thursday! Filming will continue around the village for a further week.

We asked Gloria if the production crew and cast had enjoyed working in Lymm and she said they loved it here. Filming has taken place in other locations, and the general comments from all were "We can't wait to go back to Lymm!"

We would like to wish Craig and all the cast and crew of After Hours the best of luck with the pilot series and we hope to see them return to Lymm in the future.

Chef Aiden Visits Birchwood Charity Brainwave

Aiden visited a Birchwood charity he has helped to the tune of £8,000.

The owner of the Church Green in Lymm dropped into Brainwave recently as part of the town’s Disability Awareness Week. A firm supporter of the charity, Aiden met some of the children the centre helps.

Brainwave, the Warrington Guardian’s charity of the month for June, helps children with disabilities and additional needs to achieve greater independence Aiden said: ‘Family is very important to me and my wife Sarah, as is our community and the people within it.

“When we were looking for a charity to support, we knew we wanted something that had some association to all of those elements, and Brainwave was the perfect choice. It’s always an inspiration to visit Brainwave and see first-hand the great work they do.”

Brainwave community manager Joanne Freeman said: ‘On behalf of the families we support, I’d like to thank Aiden for all his hard work and generosity.

“His fundraising is making a huge difference to the children who visit our Birchwood Centre.”

Aiden, who recently opened a new fine dining restaurant in Manchester, helped raised £8,000 after making Brainwave his charity of the year. This is enough to help two new children onto the programme.

During his visit, Aiden met the Brainwave team who support children through therapy programmes that are tailored to meet their needs.

He also had a chance to meet the families of three young children attending on the day: 18-month-old Sophia Holmes, two-year-old Eva Abbrell and nine-year-old Lilly Halam.
