Fans of TV drama series Sanditon – which has been partly filmed in Brean – have this week celebrated the success of their ‘Save Sanditon’ campaign in an illuminating way.
They projected the words ‘Sanditon is Saved’ onto Uphill Beacon as part of a social media campaign.
The series, which is based on an unfinished novel by Jane Austen, was cancelled by ITV back in 2019 but an exhaustive fan campaign to save the show secured another two seasons.
American TV network PBS thanked the show’s supporters for their backing of the show by commissioning sand artist Simon Beck to create a huge design on the beach next to Brean Down, as we reported here.
Filming of the new series has recently been underway on Brean beach, as Burnham-On-Sea.com reported here.
A spokeswoman from the group explained: “To mark the successful campaign, and to celebrate filming of season 2 and 3 being underway, the message ‘Sanditon is Saved’ was projected onto a landmark using as a location in series one. Thank you to everyone who has helped save Sanditon!”
