Film Location & Private Hire Case Study

Company Background

Blackshaws is a family-owned Car Dealer Group with a long heritage dating right the way back to 1919. The business is located in Northumberland and they have two sites, a Suzuki, Mitsubishi and Nissan dealership in Alnwick and a Mitsubishi dealership is Morpeth.



Although Ellingham Hall only recently began promoting the venue as a luxury destination for corporate events, it has a long history of helping local businesses.

One of those is Northumberland car dealership Blackshaws, where they have not only used the stunning grounds and Hall as a film location backdrop, but also for private events.


What we did

We recently handed over the Hall to Blackshaws when they wanted a venue to film a promotional video for a charity car raffle.

Two volunteers and a member of staff from a local hospice came along to show off the Suzuki car that is being raffled. They were also filmed inside the Hall as part of the video.

Marketing Manager Sue Blackshaw said: “We were delighted that Ellingham Hall let us take over the Hall and grounds for the promotional video.  

“It helped provide a stunning countryside backdrop and the team were extremely helpful and friendly, which helped us, the film crew and team from the hospice feel very relaxed and welcome.”

Over the years, we’ve also welcomed the Blackshaw family for a host of private events too, which have been very well received.



Sue added: “We know from experience that Ellingham Hall is a place that lives long in the memory, and for it to feature in our family memories shows how much we love visiting.

“It’s no surprise to us that since the Hall opened for business for corporate events and conferences, it has already become an exciting destination for the business world.”
