Central Hall Westminster hosted ‘The Late Late Show with James Corden’ when four special episodes were filmed at the venue from 13th to 15th June in front of a live audience.
This is the second time the historic London venue was chosen by the producers, Fulwell 73, to host the popular U.S. talk show after its first ever London broadcast took place there in June last year.
The London born actor and presenter filmed the four episodes of the show in the venue’s imposing Great Hall in front of a live audience. The Great Hall has previously played host to numerous significant events including the BBC New Year’s Eve Concerts, the first ever UK Laureus World Sports Awards, the FIFA Interactive World Cup and the inaugural Meeting of the UN in 1946.
Last year, James Corden described coming back to his home city for the shows as ‘a dream come true’.
Special guests who took to the Great Hall’s stage included Cher, Cate Blanchett, Orlando Bloom, Niall Horan and Foo Fighters.
The special episodes aired on Sky One and streaming service NOW TV from 19th to 22nd June, each night at 10pm. The episodes were also shown on U.S. broadcaster CBS.
Paul Southern, Managing Director of Central Hall Westminster, comments: “We are so pleased that James Corden and ‘The Late Late Show’ returned for the second time. Obviously the team like the look and feel of Central Hall but this event would not work without the technological support that we can provide here which enabled this show to be broadcast here and across the pond in the USA.”
‘The Late Late Show with James Corden’ is produced by CBS Productions, with Fulwell 73. Ben Winston and Rob Crabbe serve as executive producers. The series is distributed worldwide by CBS Studios International.
