THE Henley Standard reported last week on the Kenton Theatre being given a makeover by crews filming an episode of Endeavour, the prequel to Inspector Morse.
The New Street theatre was renamed the Empire, Oxford, and the notice boards outside were lit up.
This caused quite a stir among residents. One man came into our offices to ask what was being filmed while another had spotted a fake poster at the theatre and tried to book tickets for a fictional show!
All the commotion left Kenton managing director Wendy Bowsher smiling.
She said: “A lot of members of the public who walked past when we lit up the notice boards said ‘you should keep this’. It does looks stunning.”
