Lights, camera, action! Bargain Hunt rolls in Oswestry and films opening credits at Whittington Castle.

The Bargain Hunt crew was filming in Shropshire
while thousands of people searched for unique
treasures at an antiques market. Cameras were
rolling at the antiques market at Park Hall Showground
in Oswestry over the weekend 9th and 10th June 2018.

The Camera Crew also paid a visit to
nearby Whittington Castle
to film the opening credit shots.

Castle Manager Sue Ellis explains

"The link was Dick Whittington -
who legend tells us went from
Whittington to seek his fortune in London -
while contestants where seeking their
fortune at the Antique Fair" Natasha Raskin-Sharp
spent time at the Castle on Saturday afternoon
- chatting to visitors and posing for pictures.
Trustee Joy Duddell and Castle Manager Sue Ellis managed to
get their pictures taken".
