Writer: Tom Harper

Director: Tom Harper

Starring: Felicity Jones, Eddie Redmayne, Himesh Patel

Production Company: Amazon Studios, Mandeville Films

Kent Locations Used: The Historic Chatham Dockyard Ropery

In The Aeronauts, a fictionalised account based on some real events set in the 1860s, fictional pilot Amelia Wren (Felicity Jones) and historical meteorologist James Glaisher (Eddie Redmayne) find themselves in an epic fight for survival while attempting to make scientific discoveries in a hot air balloon.

The film is written and directed by Tom Harper (Electric Dreams, The Woman In Black 2: The Angel of Death), and stars Felicity Jones (Star Wars: Forces of Destiny, The Theory of Everything), Eddie Redmayne (The Theory of Everything, Fantastic Beasts), and Himesh Patel (Yesterday, Damned).

Production visited The Historic Chatham Dockyard for filming at Slip 3 Mezzanine as one of their main locations with additional shooting around The Ropery.

“When presented with a brief to find a balloon factory location there was really no other choice than The Historic Dockyard in Chatham. There are very few places left with an authentic Georgian timber structure that have stood the test of time.

No 3 Slip is the real deal with the added benefit of the film friendly aspects of the Dockyard Filming Team who are very welcoming with an easy can-do attitude,” commented Christian Huband, Production Designer, The Aeronauts.

The Historic Chatham Dockyard is a historic tourist attraction on the site of a former Royal Naval Dockyard and has been the location for several recent productions set in the Victorian period including Year of the Rabbit (2019), Peterloo (2018) and Vanity Fair (2018).

The Aeronauts will be released in UK cinemas on Monday 4th November 2019.
