Alumni News

Putting the Castle in Perspective


If you are one of those Castle alumni that misses practically everything about the BISC except the English weather, then two episodes of Sky Arts’  “Landscape Artist of the Year 2019” are bound to give you a wry smile this fall. The Castle grounds and Observatory Science Centre provided the venue for two heats of the hit show, which were filmed at the end of June in absolutely torrential rain. (Here at Herstmonceux we can really put the water in watercolour!)  

We are delighted to confirm that the footage featuring the Observatory will appear in the second episode in the series and will go out on Tuesday, October 22nd at 8 pm on Sky Arts.  The episode featuring the Castle will be transmitted on Tuesday, November 5th, also at 8 pm on Sky Arts.
