Alex Hua Tian, born in London, is an Olympic equestrian sportsman for China. He is the only Chinese event rider competing internationally. Alex took a year out of his studies at Eton to prepare for the 2008 Olympics in Beijing. He qualified four horses between October 2007 and May 2008. Although as a host nation competitor he only needed to achieve a minimum standard, he qualified in his own right through the rankings as the youngest ever Olympic event rider. In mid-2008 he achieved a ranking of 21st in the world.
Lord Ashbrook Lectures in America - "In March 2012 My wife Zoe and I visited the United States with a view to my giving a lecture on Arley Hall and its gardens. The invitation to do this came from an old friend, P.Allen Smith, of Little Rock, Arkansas. Allen is a distinguished garden designer and host of television programmes in the USA.
I gave the lecture at three different locations – First, at the Winterthur Museum, Delaware, then at the Clinton School of Public administration, part of the Clinton Library, Little Rock – and finally at the Carriage House Restaurant, Natchez, Miississippi."
The video below was made of the lecture given at Little Rock.
From the exclusive location for the series, Cluedo and Soames' house in the Forsythe Saga to being a backdrop for The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes and hosting a number of Coronation Street weddings, Arley has proved to be a top class venue for film and television companies. In addition, Arley is a popular venue for commercial filming and photography, including advertisements and product launches.
Arley Hall has a number of spacious staterooms, each given its own character by the elaborate plasterwork, panelling and furniture. From the Emperor's Room, once home to Napoleon III, through to the magnificent oak-panelled Library and the Gallery with its stain glass windows and impressive fireplace, the Hall offers a series of historic, opulent and authentic backdrops. Other indoor opportunities include the C15th Cruck Barn and the new state-of-the-art conference centre, Olympia.
The magnificent Gardens, recently voted amongst the top 50 in Europe and top 10 in Britain, are celebrated for their double herbaceous borders, giant Ilex columns, pleached Lime Avenue, yew topiary and walled gardens and offers a stunning variety of backdrops for film and photography.
The Estate's 2,000 acres features undulating park, ancient woodland, secluded hamlet and lake as well as a cobbled stableyard present countless film and photo opportunities in an undisturbed environment.
