Kent Filming Locations: Pantiles and Calverley Grounds, Tunbridge Wells, Cobham Village Hall   

This Christmas, keep your eyes pealed for the 2009 Morrison’s Christmas advert hitting our screens.   

The seasonal advert stars Richard Hammond (Top Gear) and fellow celebrity, Denise Van Outen, grabbing their trolleys and buying their festive foods in the large supermarket chain.   

The elegant streets of The Pantiles were transformed by Santa Elves, Reindeers and a ton of fake snow bringing a touch of Christmas festivity to the town in October! 

The Calverley Grounds were also made over with a blanket of fake snow, a fun fair and ice rink proving Tunbridge Wells to be the perfect location for creating this winter wonderland.   

This is Morrisons’ second visit to the town as they also filmed the 2007 Christmas advert in Tunbridge Wells. Their decision to return to the beautiful town once again, bought delight to the locals who gathered in their hundreds for a glimpse of the action and the guest stars.
