“LUXURY LIBERATED” CASTING CALL A SEAHAM HALL BRAND FILM

Terms and Conditions ("Terms")

This is not a competition & there is no “prize” aside from being cast in the film

Terms and Conditions

Seaham Hall is a 5* luxury Georgian country house hotel on the Durham coastline and home of the award winning Serenity Spa.

Located on Lord Byron’s Walk the property is steeped in history and has many links to the infamous poet and activist of the Romantic period, who is the namesake of the address.  Despite the grandeur of the house and the historic touches, the service, design and experience has a contemporary and unexpected warmth. It is “luxury liberated”.

We are holding this “Casting Call” to help us identify between 10 -30 men and  women, including two lead roles (one male and one female, aged early 30’s) to win the opportunity to be considered for an in-person casting.  This will be held in mid-late April at Seaham Hall itself. We are searching for people who represent the Seaham Hall brand and become ambassadors of the rebellious spirit that informs our hotel environment.
