For those who wish to attend and be part of the first “official” CBP video clip, here’s the info you’ll need.
The shoot takes place on the Saturday 7th January at Upper Heyford Airbase, Nr Bicester, Oxfordshire, OX25.
So…Clothing. We need you all to be dressed in black, red or cammo colours, hats, hoods, scarves or other interesting partisan style accessories would be great. Bring some warm clothes, there’s no heating in these old buildings.
Also, if you can, bring some food, but we will try to cater as much as we can, but we’re not rich and it depends on how many people turn up, so just be prepared.
We’ll be filming all day but we need the “extras” to arrive at 2:30pm, please try to be on time, someone will meet you and give you directions for assembling the mob.
Anyone who is definitely coming, please email your names and numbers of people if you’re coming as a group, to – email@example.com Just so we know and so we don’t miss any of you.
Directions from the M40 – Turn off at J10 and head towards Middleton Stoney on the B430 for about 2 miles, then turn right to Upper Heyford (if you get to Middleton Stoney you have gone too far!). Follow the road for about a mile and turn right at the t-junction on the corner, onto Camp Road. Drive through the base going straight ahead at the first small roundabout (at the main gate on the right), then at the second roundabout turn left onto Dacey Drive. You’ll see the old abandoned US style supermarket on your right, immediately after that there’s the entrance also on the right (with a fence gate), go through the gate and you have reached your destination.
From Oxford – Head towards Banbury on the A4260, about 7/8 miles after Kiddlington turn right at the traffic lights (with the petrol station and hotel on opposite corners) onto the B4030. Follow this road passing over the narrow bridge and through Lower Heyford (you’ll see the train station on the left), head up the hill and out of the village to Upper Heyford. As soon as you enter Upper Heyford turn right onto Camp Road. Go about half a mile into the airbase. Turn right at the first roundabout onto Dacey Drive, turn into the gate just by the old supermarket on the right… this is your destination.
There is a train station in Lower Heyford, trains run semi-regular on saturdays from Oxford, it’s about 2/3 mile walk to the base from there (no taxis at the station, as it’s very small). Alternatively get a train to Bicester, it’s about 5/6 miles from the base, there some bus service to Upper Heyford, but a taxi would be the best plan.
If you have a satnav, use the postcode OX25, the place we’re filming doesn’t have a road name but the closest would be Dacey Drive, if that doesn’t work, use Eady Road OX25 5TU, that will get you very near the gate, Dacey Drive and Eady Road run parallel.
