Brideshead Bad Behaviour

sumitted by Kate Day, director of MCDC

Hopefully one of us has mentioned at some point that MCDC features in the 1981 classic serialisation of Brideshead Revisited?  In fact a drunken Sebastian Flyte crashes his car into the front of the building, only to be arrested by the rozzers on Copperas St!  Here’s the Youtube link – the crash happens around 21 mins.

Apparently in 1981 Manchester was a cheap place to film so the series producers (Granada?) used the NQ as a location.  We think that the club that Sebastian & mates get sloshed at is probably filmed at Band on the Wall.

Absolutely thrilled to discover The Complete History of Drinking in the Northern Quarter project this week, Keen to discover more about them and see where our projects crosses over, more about this later..
