Dear Resident & Business,

Following on from our letter delivered last week, we wanted to update you with further information on our upcoming filming on Edmund Street.


We have established Edmund Street and Margaret Street as the hero location with Gas Hall entrance of the Museum playing as an exterior of a bank.

The plan is to stage a fully controlled demonstration that involves a large number of cast and background and special effects.

Schedule of Works:

Prep: Wednesday 10th & Thursday 11th & Friday 12th November

(Edmund Street & Margaret Street)

Rehearsal Day: Saturday 13th November

(Edmund Street & Margaret Street)

Night Shoot: Monday 15th to Friday 19th & Monday 22nd to Wednesday 24th November

Road & Pedestrian Closures

To contain the filming, we will implement road and pavement closures, with temporary diversions and marshal information points.

The road closure will be in place on Edmund Street and Margaret Street from 10th November to 26th November 2021 (excluding Sunday 14th November) with pavement closures in place during the shoot hours. Access will be maintained for deliveries on Edmund St between the hours of 0700 and 1600 each day, over the weekend of the 20th and 21st access will be given throughout the day for those required.

Please see attached map on the reverse of this letter detailing the areas of our proposed closures.

Access will be maintained to homes and businesses, but for safety reasons we may ask for pedestrians to wait whilst we complete the shot, this will only be for a few minutes at a time. If you have any special requirements / deliveries that need accommodating, please contact us in advance.

Parking Suspensions

To facilitate the filming, we will be asking to suspend bays on Edmund Street, Cornwall Street and Newhall Street, Livery Street, Barwick Street, New Market Street and Church Street for the above shoot dates.

Covid 19 Protocols

We are a fully Covid-19 compliant production, with a robust testing programme and have introduced various measures which will apply to the crew working in and around the public.

We will have a large presence in the area throughout our filming nights and during the day

Thank you for taking the time to read this letter and please do not hesitate to contact Film Birmingham or ourselves on the details below should you have any questions about our project.

Kind regards,
