The Little Stranger: Prize Draw

The Little Stranger filmed at Newby Hall in Yorkshire

To celebrate the opening of The Little Stranger in cinemas on 21 September 2018, with much of the filming on location at Newby Hall and Gardens in North Yorkshire, Historic Houses launched a competition to celebrate Sarah Walters’ book with prizes including a pair of exclusive tickets to a live screening of the film in London and a copy of the book itself.

Newby Hall is a prime location for film shoots and often stars in big production film and TV dramas, including Season 1 of Peaky Blinders. It even doubled as Buckingham Palace, Kensington Palace and Brooks’s Club on the ITV series Victoria.
