DZC in Three Little Birds

Did you spot some familiar backdrops in last night’s Three Little Birds on ITV?

Written by Dudley’s Sir Lenny Henry, we were delighted to welcome Lenny and the cast and crew of his new drama on-site last November, as they filmed scenes for episode five.

And regular visitors may have even caught a quick glimpse of Zoo Curator Richard Brown, who swapped his uniform for 1950’s keeper attire, even shaving off his beard for authenticity!

It was performing here at DZC – in the former Queen Mary Ballroom (now the Queen Mary Restaurant) which helped launch Lenny’s career.

Lenny, who started out with weekly stand-up slots in the Queen Mary, also worked as a barman in the Safari Night Club in the early 1970s.

If you missed Three Little Birds, you can watch the whole series now on ITVX.
