In this 10-week course we will look at at least 10 houses that have featured on film and TV set in the last few years.

We will analyse the architecture, dip into the history of the house concerned and see just where and how they appeared on the screen. Houses to be considered include: Highclere Castle (Downton Abbey), Ham House (Anna Karenina & others), Knole (A game of Shadows), Broughton Castle (Shakespeare in Love), Joldwynds (Poirot), Laycock Abbey (Wolf Hall), Cliveden (Hampstead), Claydon (Far From the Madding Crowd), Petworth House (Mr. Turner) Basildon Park (Pride and Prejudice) plus some others. Most houses are in the Home counties for ease of visiting. For details email aandrews@wea.org.uk or visit: wea.org.uk.
