Brassic filmed in Manchester and staring Michelle Keegan was a surprise hit for Sky One. The British comedy-drama television series first aired on 22 August 2019 and instantly became a huge hit. It is set in the fictional town of Hawley and follows the lives of Vinnie and his friends.
The comedy show which was created by Joe Gilgun and Danny Brocklehurst and written by Daniel Brocklehurst and Alex Ganley was filmed in locations across the North West. Although it was filmed in Manchester, the comedy show was inspired by Joe Gilgun experiences of living in and growing up in Chorley.
Location manager Jonathan Davies stated, “We were given the scripts and a few of us had a meeting with Joe Gilgun to talk through the feel and look of the show. It is a complicated and collaborative process to build a world that fits with the story and script.”
So where is Brassic filmed? There are many locations that were used for the show including the Lancashire town of Bacup. Infact, before news was released that Sky One was making a new comedy drama, people were asking why Michelle Keegan was filming in Bacup.
Further filming locations of Brassic included Bolton. The pub scenes for Brassic were filmed in a pub called The Star and Garter which is near Manchester Piccadilly train station.
