Christmas tree in Bracknell Town Centre for BBC TV series

Published: 4 Sep 2014 16:402 comments

ONLOOKERS were rubbing their eyes in disbelief this morning (Thursday) after a giant Christmas tree was erected in Bracknell town centre, despite it being nearly four months until Christmas Day.

The tree has been positioned on top of Charles Square's clock fountain but it is unsure how long it will remain there for.

A statement from the BBC has confirmed that the Christmas tree is up due to filming scheduled for the BBC2 series The Wrong Mans.

The series is a comedy drama starring James Corden of Gavin & Stacey fame.

Are you excited for the filming of another television series in Bracknell? Do you think it's too early for a Christmas tree to go up? Send us your comments to

    Unbelievable! Still, it's about the only thing the Bracknell Degeneration Partnership has managed to put up in the town centre in years.

    Good news. I'm not sure they filmed much (if any) of the previous series in Bracknell although it was supposedly set here so it'll be fun to spot local landmarks. Very funny first series so here's hoping the next will be as good.
