Sony cameras and lenses will be available on a first come first served basis subject to availability. Exclusive Sony offers will be available on the day with a UK retailer including the opportunity to trade in your gear against new Sony gear.

Claymills is a restored Victorian pumping station and it was designed by James Mansergh and the main pumping plant consists of four Woolf compound, rotative, beam pumping engines. These are arranged in mirror image pairs, in two separate engine houses, with a central boiler house (containing five Lancashire boilers with economisers) and chimney. The engines were built in 1885 by Gimson and Company of Leicester. It is one of only three pumping stations of this size and completeness to survive in England and will provide us with a wonderful variety of backdrops and scenes. We will have exclusive use of the site and unlimited tea and coffee is provided throughout the day.
