As Seen On-Screen: The Favourite Wins BAFTA Award

Congratulations are in order as The Favourite took home an amazing 7 BAFTA Award wins, including best actress, best British film, best production design, best supporting actress, best original screenplay and best costume design. More recently Olivia Colman was named ‘Best Actress’ at this year’s Oscars.

We were delighted to welcome the talented cast and crew of The Favourite to Hatfield House for filming last year and the entire team at Hatfield are immensely proud to have been part of such an amazing production “It is fantastic to be able to say that Hollywood arrived here at the Estate!”- Sarah Cardall-Spawforth, Senior Operations Manager.

Approximately 85% of the film was shot at Hatfield House and are we are delighted with how stunning Hatfield looks in the multiple scenes. Those visitors who are familiar with the House will notice some significant changes made to the both the interior and exterior of the building. The transformation of the House saw secret passages and doorways being added and King James’s Drawing Room and the Library in particular were subject to a number of additions and alterations.
