Grade II listed BMA House develops filming and photography options

BMA House has developed a series of filming and photography shoot options for clients following several successful ad-hoc bookings over the last 18 months.

Specifically, the grand Courtyard and driveway of BMA House have provided the backdrop to the likes of Speechless (starring Minnie Driver and comedy legend John Cleese), a Nike advert (starring Harry Kane) and was even used for the award-winning BBC one drama Spooks as far back as 2011.

Once home to novelist Charles Dickens, BMA House offers two outdoor spaces; the large, opulent Courtyard overlooked by two ‘royal’ balconies; and the botanical Garden, with feature pond, a beautiful, tranquil setting for any season, period or location shoot.

Located in the heart of Bloomsbury but tucked away in a private setting, many of its indoor spaces provide a contemporary contrast to the feel of its heritage, period outside areas.

BMA House is also just a stone’s throw from Woburn Walk, an idyllic, Victorian style street providing a backdrop for films such as Christopher Robin, The Aeronauts and Cruella.

Kat Winfield, Venue Manager, BMA House comments: BMA House has already been used for a number of high-profile filming shoots, including several we cannot currently reveal. The venue’s flexibility, architecture and unique features make it ideal for a wide variety of use, meaning we have been used for everything from period dramas to modern adverts. We are currently in talks to be a significant part of a well know ongoing series.”
