Back in Time for Tea

The makers of the hit series Back in Time for Dinner and Further Back in Time for Dinner are looking for a family to immerse themselves in the past, and experience the lives and diets of working Northerners over the last 150 years.

The chosen family will have a once in a lifetime opportunity to spend the 2017 school summer holidays stepping back in time and experiencing what life was like for people in these bygone days – where they lived, what work they did, what they ate and how they cooked it.

If you’d like the chance to embark on an exciting journey into 150 years of domestic life in the North, then we would love to hear from you.

Please email for more information. 


Filming will take place between July and September 2017 and October and November 2017. Please note that all family members will need to be available during filming.
