Channel Four’s hit TV show Location, Location, Location came to Yumn Boxpark for the latest episode of the popular house-hunting series.
The programme, set to broadcast at 8pm on Wednesday, 13th October, sees presenter Phil Spencer help a pair of newlyweds search for a home in the up-and-coming Croydon property market. A production team of nine spent three hours filming Phil and the couple at the new Yumn Boxpark.
The TV crew of the long running show charmed the owners and staff of the restaurant but they asked everyone to ‘keep Mum’ about the details until the episode has been broadcast.
“We are huge fans of the show so it was very exciting to have Phil and the Channel Four team here at Yumn!” said Yumn Boxpark Director, Faisal Hussin.
“We were really pleased that Channel Four chose our new Boxpark restaurant to film the segment for Location, Location, Location. Everyone was so nice and we found it really interesting to learn a little about how they make the show.”
“The house hunters were looking for somewhere in Croydon, which just shows how popular the town has become with young professionals.
“There is so much happening here now – people love having Croydon’s famous Boxpark and the South Croydon Restaurant Quarter – where we have our other restaurant, Yumn Brasserie – on the doorstep.”
The episode of Location, Location, Location finds presenters Kirstie Allsopp and Phil Spencer helping two sets of young buyers get their collective foot on the tricky Greater London property ladder.
