Where was All That Glitters filmed?

  • All That Glitters is set in the historic jewellery quarter at Birmingham School of Jewellery!

Birmingham City Institute of Jewellery, Fashion and Textiles is the home to BBC TWO’s talent search for the nation’s best jewellery maker. The showcase hall was transformed into a more modernised jeweller’s heaven with a bunch of pendant motors, kilns and kits.

The School of Jewellery became the home of All That Glitters and though filming started in February 2020 there was a three-month pause due to coronavirus restriction.

The filming continued when it was safe to do so and took place last summer even though background work started as far back as November 2019.

Head of School, Professor Stephen Bottomley reflects on what the location hunters thought of the place: “As with all who visit the School for the first time, they were incredibly impressed by the scale and resources. It’s fair to say, like many, they fell in love with its Victorian Venetian-Gothic grandeur and history and saw the potential.”
