Series seven of the show has seen a change of location – but where exactly is it filmed?

Where is the Great British Sewing Bee filmed?

This year’s series of the Great British Sewing Bee is filmed at Trinity Buoy Wharf in London’s Docklands.

Previously the series was filmed at Bermondsey to the south of the Thames.

The show has also previously been filmed at Metropolitan Wharf in Wapping, London.

Judge Patrick Grant was full of praise for the new location.

Ahead of the show’s launch he said: "It was a real joy to spend time there. We’d come onto the set just before 7am every day and the sunrises and sunsets were amazing. Having that wonderful vista across the River Thames from the sewing room, can’t help but inspire the sewers. It was a spectacular place to shoot."

Who are the judges and presenters this year?

Esme Young and Patrick Grant are returning to present the show for a seventh season.

Esme, along with four passionate women about fashion, opened a London based shop called ‘Swanky Modes’ in the 70s. Their clothes appeared in magazines and newspapers including Vogue, Nova, Honey, 19, ID, The Face, Boulevard, Interview, The Sunday Times, Express, Mail, and the V&A Little Black Dress Book.

Patrick is a regular on television and radio as a commentator on the British fashion, clothing and textile industries. He has been a contributor to several major television documentaries including Savile Row, Harris Tweed, and The Perfect Suit, but is best known for his role in the The Great British Sewing Bee, for which he earned a 2017 National Television Awards nomination.

They will be joined by comedian Joe Lycett.

Multi award winning comedian Joe is one of the country’s best-loved stand-ups, enjoying three sell out UK and Ireland tours, scooping two Chortle Awards and an Edinburgh Comedy Award nomination for his warm, sardonic brand of comedy.

When is it on?

Series 7 of The Great British Sewing Bee starts at 9pm on April 14.

You can watch it on BBC One or BBC iPlayer.
