A film crew will take over Bo’ness Racecourse this month to film a major new series for Amazon/BBC Studios.

Hope Street and Hamilton Lane in Bo’ness will be closed for two days as Nice and Accurate Productions take over the historic building, which is the oldest purpose-built picture house in Scotland.

The filming is understood to be for ‘Good Omens 2’, the new Amazon/BBC production, starring David Tennant and Michael Sheen, which is currently filming in Scotland.

The company says it will be using Bo’ness Racecourse on Monday February 14 and Tuesday February 15.

They will also use the space inside the Library and Town Hall to accommodate extras as well as some local businesses on Hope Street, although their base is in the Bo’ness and Kinneil Railway Museum.

There will be a road closure in place on Hope Street and Hamilton Lane from 6am Monday 2pm until 9pm Tuesday 15th February with a single yellow line and bay suspensions on South Street and Market Street from Saturday 12th February to Wednesday February 16.

The production company said it spoke and liaised with residents and businesses over the past two weeks to ensure any issues were resolved before filming.
