Llandudno Lifeboat Station provides the perfect backdrop for BBC Filming
Llandudno’s RNLI Lifeboat Station and the all-weather lifeboat William F Yates provided the perfect backdrop for filming an episode of the BBC TV programme Antiques Road Trip.
For this programme, due to be screened in the autumn, antiques expert and TV presenter David Harper joined forces with local choir Cor Meibion Colwyn to perform a rousing version of “Bread of Heaven”.
David said: ‘We’re having an incredible time filming in Wales. Over the weekend we joined the fantastic Cor Colwyn for a lovely little singalong. Also, a big shout-out to the RNLI in the background there who do such an amazing job each and every day.’
A RNLI spokesperson added: ‘this was a great opportunity to both support our friends Cor Meibion Colwyn and to show the wider public what a great new boathouse we have here in Llandudno.’
