Where is The Big Flower Fight set?
The Big Flower Fight is filmed in Maidstone, near Kent, and features a giant Eden Project-style greenhouse as the centre of the activities.
The gorgeous filming location was right near Vic Reeves’ house, which was one of the reasons he wanted to get involved.
Speaking about the setting, Natasia Demetriou said: “I never really got used to it. Everytime I saw it I couldn’t believe it. And when we filmed into the late evening, the sun setting on the field behind us, the dome was so beautiful. It was very picturesque.”
Reeves added: “We were very lucky with the weather as well, it was really lovely weather. You could see the cornfields growing and getting cut down and it was an ever-changing beautiful vista.”
