The booming scene around the film production industry within Yorkshire and the Humber is largely part to the efforts and dedication of a screening agency called Screen Yorkshire; who have worked for the recognition of Yorkshire as one of the best hubs for creative outputs outside of London. They specialise in developing talent and financial investments for upcoming productions, all within Yorkshire.
It is without a doubt that Yorkshire is one of the most diverse counties in the UK when talking about locations. One minute you are sat, eating fish and chips overlooking the stunning views of Whitby harbour from the cathedral (where Dracula is based) and then the next moment you are walking among gritty yet beautiful buildings of cities like Leeds and York.
To honour Yorkshire’s fame with film production, here are just a few high-end productions created within Yorkshire’s rolling hills: Goathland station (North Yorkshire railway) was turned into ‘Hogsmeade’ from Harry Potter. Thirsk, Malton and Pickering were used for the gripping filming of All Creatures Great and Small. Selby, Church Fenton, Harrogate and Harewood house were all used in the creation of 2019’s Victoria. The first film ever was also shot in Yorkshire by Filmmaker and Inventor Louis Le Prince!
With such a historically amazing repertoire of productions already developed within Yorkshire, why wouldn’t you wish to visit or film here?
Base your production at Lumby Hall
McGill Productions used Lumby Hall as the set for their horror thriller short film The Therapist. With a crew of 11 and starring Anna Gilbraith, Roisin Monaghan & Tip Cullen the film was shot over 4 days throughout Lumby Hall.
Needs somewhere to stay whilst on location?
Within the heart of Yorkshire is a small farming village called Lumby, surrounded by fields of sheep and wheat. In this small village, you can find a stunning Georgian country home called Lumby Hall. It has five beautifully modern ensuite bedrooms, long warm hallways, floor to ceiling paintings, a grand staircase, rejuvenated kitchen and expansive grounds (including a tennis court).
Connected to the house through the Orangery, is the Garage which has previously been used for hosting charity events, and a cafe. However now it lays dormant, and consists of several curiosities including a pub, a post office, a police station and a disused petrol filling station.
Lumby Hall can be hired on a weekly or fixed term contract. Please contact us for more details
