Just to note that I am following government advice during this national emergency and the photograph was taken during my government sanctioned exercise. #westonsupermare
Noticed in the blog stats one of the search terms used that resulted in someone finding my blog was
the cafe on tv at weston super mare is it real
I suspect my recent blog post on the filming of The Café was the reason Google directed them to my blog.
There is no real Cyril’s, it’s a fabrication, just a set, but they do film in Weston-super-Mare.
The café building itself is just a set, it’s not a real café dressed at Cyril’s but a set built for filming and when done, it’s broken down and taken away until the next season (if one is commissioned) is filmed.
This evening they were filming down on Weston-super-Mare seafront for the Sky series, The Café.
This is a comedy that is shown on Sky.
Funny, touching and a little bit romantic, too, The Café is a brilliant new comedy from director Craig Cash, and co-writers and stars Ralf Little and Michelle Terry. The Café is a sweet sitcom based in Cyril’s in Weston-super-mare. Run by three generations of women, gran Mary, divorcee Carol and daughter Sarah (played by Michelle Terry who co-wrote The Café with Ralf Little), Cyril’s sees all sorts on the seaside front, from gobby hairdressers to living statue Kieran. Meanwhile Sarah meets up with old sweetheart, Richard (Ralf) who has hopes of re-kindling their romance.
Of course there is no real Cyril’s, it’s a fabrication, just a set, but they do film in Weston-super-Mare.
Apart from the awful rain coming down, which I guess they weren’t expecting, if they planned to film in July, what they did have was a high tide…
You could actually see the sea in Weston-super-Mare (aka by the sea).
Normally, because of the extremely high tidal range, you rarely see the sea all the way up the beach. The pier is usually never “in” the water and all you can see is sand and mud.
