We’re making the trailer for Twelfth Night at the National Trust’s Wightwick Manor in the West Midlands this week.

The unique and beautiful 19th century timber-framed manor house is full of pre-Raphaelite art, as well as textiles by William Morris and his contemporaries from the Arts and Crafts movement. Twelfth Night’s Designer Simon Higlett and Director Christopher Luscombe are drawing inspiration for the set design from the interiors of Wightwick Manor.

We’re bringing in cameras, together with actors including Adrian Edmondson (Malvolio) and Kara Tointon (Olivia) this week to take photos and create the trailer, which will be released on our website and social media later this summer.

Twelfth Night plays in the Royal Shakespeare Theatre from 2 November.
