Residents in this picturesque corner of Lambeth are used to this sort of thing. Their neighbourhood has been the backdrop for many fantastic films over the last few years. Local Residents Associations including LERA, Octavia Hill Residents Association and several other community groups have supported many wonderful projects from donations made by grateful film companies.
Permits for filming and crane licences for the lighting platforms were arranged by Lambeth Film Office. Already in 2021, we have bookings for ‘Embankment’ a new TV drama starring Gary Oldman and Kristen Scott Thomas, and ‘Untitled Murder Mystery’ starring Sam Rockwell for Disney.
