50th Cover Shoot at Blenheim Palace

Thank you to everyone for attending the B4 50th Edition cover shoot at Blenheim Palace and to Dominic Hare (CEO) and Heather Carter (Operations Director) at Blenheim Palace for hosting. Considering guests came from all quarters of Oxfordshire, it was a wonderful turnout for early on a Friday morning, demonstrating the warmth and support for B4. Thank you to Clark Wiseman of Studio 8 and to all the B4 team.

It was also great to see our original editor, Simon Howson-Green, who made a special trip from London to be with us for the shoot. Simon commented “I have fond memories of my time at B4 and it’s great to see the team reach such an impressive milestone. It was great to be invited back to share this special moment.” The cover will be out in December and the 50th edition will be celebrated at Blenheim Palace in the new year – details to be confirmed. Dominic added. “Thanks to B4 for choosing Blenheim as the venue for such a landmark moment.”

B4’s Richard Rosser also commented. “To see so many good friends of B4 making the effort to join us for our 50th shoot was incredible. There was such a good atmosphere and to be allowed to shoot the cover at, arguably, Oxfordshire’s most iconic venue just added to this special occasion. Thank you to Blenheim, Clark, the B4 team and all of the B4 members who came together to celebrate our 50th edition. I just hope we managed to get everyone’s ‘best side’!”
