Take That cast enjoy Piña Coladas at East Lancashire restaurant
The cast and crew of the Take That musical film took a break from filming to enjoy food and drink at a popular east Lancashire restaurant over the weekend.
Aisling Bea and other Greatest Days cast and crew members posed for a photo at The Wellsprings restaurant in Sabden on Sunday.
Here they enjoyed Spanish appetizers, cocktails and the spectacular view of the Ribble Valley.
Posting on her Instagram Story, Aisling Bea thanked the restaurant for hosting them
She said: “Shout out to The Wellsprings restaurant for the delicious cocktails and not getting caught in the rain.”
Catherine Marhraoui, owner of the restaurant, said the cast was “in good shape”, enjoying cocktails, quesadillas, paella and more.
She said: “They came to see us because we have such a great view of the Ribble Valley from the restaurant.
“They were all great fun and enjoyed being here. They were very impressed with the restaurant.”
Catherine said the film production is great for the company and others in the region.
She said: “Every business now needs as much promotion as possible so having movie scenes shot in the area is absolutely brilliant for the North West because I’m sure the movie is going to be so big.
“Our restaurant is quite popular anyway, but recent filming has brought more diners to the restaurant.
“It’s great for the area and we can’t wait to see the film.”
This isn’t the first time the cast and crew have visited the restaurant, as filming took place on the Nick Of Pendle last Tuesday (April 5). They took a break during filming to enjoy a hot drink.
Catherine said: “Tuesday we had the typical Lancashire rain. We provided the cast and crew with tea and coffee to warm them up and protect them from the rain.
“They all came back for a weekend meal where they were able to enjoy a great view and some sunshine.”
Filming for Greatest Days has been taking place in Ribble Valley since early April.
Last week, they transformed the Doe Bakehouse window display especially for the film, changing the font for aesthetic reasons.
Filming also disrupted roads in Ribble Valley, with several being closed so scenes could be shot in the Clitheroe area.
