ABOUT LYTHAM HALL
Lytham Hall is the finest Georgian house in Lancashire. It was once the ancestral home of the colourful Clifton Family, spanning over four centuries.
It is a Grade I listed building, and is of significant local and national interest. The site and its 80 acres of parkland are of great archaeological interest dating back to the 12th century when it was home to a priory of Benedictine monks. Sir Cuthbert Clifton built a Jacobean Manor House on this site in 1606. Much of the Jacobean building still exists. In 1752 Thomas Clifton commissioned John Carr of York to build the fine palladian house which we will be using for this Session Days Event.
We have exclusive access to all areas inside the Hall and we will be placing models on sets that best suit their style and dress on the day. Our primary locations for sets will include.

HOW DOES IT WORK?
We believe firmly that Session Days Events should allow everyone attending to get an equal opportunity to shoot with each of the models. We will be arranging attendees into groups of three and then rotate each group around the sets in turn every 27 minutes with a short five minute break between each set. On this event each attendee will get to work with each of the seven models in turn.
Lighting equipment will be provided on each set for use during both sessions. The use of equipment is included within your admission price. On each set we will be designing a lighting setup to suit the theme. Lights will either be continuous lights or studio/strobe lighting with triggers and modifiers for your use. If you require assistance using the lights provided then we will be on hand to provide expertise.
You are also welcome to bring along your own lighting rigs if you are more comfortable using them but you must keep them with you at all times and observe COVID compliant usage restrictions.
We are a COVID-19 responsible organisation and will be taking and making all necessary arrangements to observe guidelines and to ensure safety wherever possible. All attendees will be required to bring their own masks and to wear them at all times. The only people not wearing masks will be the models.
There will be hand sanitisers on each set for your usage and anti-bacterial wipes will be required when handing over triggers for lights. You will be required to maintain safe distancing guidelines at all times and you will not be able to handle props on any set.
There will be no refreshment facilities for tea/coffee provided on the event, you must bring your own for safety reasons.
