We have had a great day’s filming with the crew from BBC Countryfile around the Maltings.
From filming the buildings and appreciating their rich history to a piece with Emma Green, local artist and our Gallery curator. Emma and presenter Ellie used oils to paint the river and the expansive Suffolk sky whilst standing on the river wall (as per my picture). Then Ellie went on to interview Pat Lord, who has lived at the Maltings for over 70 years of her life followed by a piece with Aldeburgh Young Musicians. Just now as the tide is coming in they are sailing into the Maltings aboard ‘Cygnet’, the resident Thames sailing barge.
It has been a superb experience for everyone involved and incredibly appreciative of how fantastic all the crew have been, we are all looking forward to the broadcast on Sunday 29th April.
