The famous film "Elizabeth" staged many historic scenes here.
"The Making of Harry Potter" was based at Chillingham..
The Hollywood ghost film, "Most Frightened", was indeed “most frightened” when the spiritual forces of Chillingham arranged an unexpected turn! This spectacle actually appeared on film, but few thought it was other than gimmick!
T.V. Channel 4, "The Big Breakfast", actually filmed the torture chamber implements as they stirred into ghostly action at midnight.
BBC Channel 2 produced Jeremy Musson’s "The Curious House Guest", featuring a very social house party at the Castle, the family in residence with parties in the State Rooms and with horse riding expeditions into the beautiful hills and park.
BBC Chanel 4’s "Meet the Natives" was an intriguing study of native cultures mixing, as Oceanic Tribesmen dressed for formal meals before displaying their grass skirted tribal dances.
In October 2000, “Fox Family Channel” dared a family, the Olsons, from a small town in Illinois, to fly over from the United States and spend the night at Chillingham, Britain’s most haunted castle. The result was a night the Olsons, the Fox Family and all the TV viewers will never forget! This became the highest rated event in the “Fox Family” history!
The Castle hosts many light hearted events for film and TV, with Watercolour Challenges, Morris dancers, concerts, operas, garden parties and festive events.
