Our traditional pole tents’ timeless style and period character have proved a hit on a bigger stage too, with film and TV companies queuing up to use our to expertise to recreate scenes from days gone by.
In fact, one of our marquees is currently playing a starring role in a new blockbuster being shot in the beautiful Trossachs countryside.
Billy Connolly and David Tennant are among the household names performing under Myreton canvas in “What We Did On Our Holiday”.
“David Tennant will star in the movie What We Did On Our Holiday which will be released in the UK in 2014.
It will also star Rosamond Pike, Ben Miller, Celia Imrie and Billy Connolly.
What We Did On Our Holiday is written and directed by Andy Hamilton and Guy Jenkin (who wrote Outnumbered). The producer is David Thompson. The movie will be developed by Origin Pictures and backed by BBC Films. Lionsgate UK will distribute the movie.
The storyline is that a family, who are going through a tough time, undertake a road trip to Scotland for the grandfather’s 75th birthday but encounter chaos along the way. The two harassed parents try to manage their three astute children.
What We Did On Our Holiday is based on characters from the UK TV series Outnumbered but will not use that cast.
Filming started on 17th June and is expected to last for 7 weeks.”
But you don’t have to be a star to enjoy a vintage event in one of our marquees — although you’ll soon feel like one.
