Exciting happenings at Blenheim Palace
Try visiting the dynamic exhibition ‘Lights, Camera, Action’, which has at its heart many of the films and TV programmes in which Blenheim Palace has featured. The most recent large productions include Gulliver’s Travels (Fox UK Productions 2010), The Young Victoria (Momentum Pictures, 2008) and Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix (Warner Brothers, 2007).
Visitors will be able to see references to films ranging from Entrapment (20th Century Fox, 1999), Hamlet (Castle Rock, Kenneth Branagh, 1996) and Bollywood’s Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham (Yash Raj films, 2001), to documentaries including BBC’s ‘Climbing Britain’ and ITV’s ‘Lewis’.
Blenheim Palace is also running two events to celebrate Easter. Its annual Easter Egg Challenge and the Easter Weekend Entertainment event, both of which are aimed at family fun and will feature appearances (at intervals) by the well-known characters, the slovenly ground sloth, Sid, and the acorn obsessed, sabretoothed squirrel, Scrat, from Ice Age, along with Mike the Knight and the Little Princess.
Situated in Woodstock, just eight miles from Oxford, Blenheim Palace is surrounded by over 2,000 acres of Capability Brown landscaped parkland, the great lake and beautiful formal gardens that offer an unforgettable day out for all.
