The isle’s stardom continues with an appearance in a music video.
In the past few weeks Thanet has been the backdrop for a Vogue fashion shoot, scenes for Sky Atlantic’s The Tunnel and the location for Night at Hatton Garden blockbuster with Michael Caine and Charlie Cox filming on Margate’s Stone Pier and the Nayland Rock.
And now Botany Bay features in the latest video released by teen singer Shawn Mendes.
It is the backdrop for the Canadian singer/songwriter’s latest number There’s Nothing Holding Me Back.
The 18-year-old is currently on tour in the UK and Europe before heading back to North America next months for the next round of performances.
The filming was organised with the help of Thanet council.
Cllr Crow-Brown, Cabinet Member for Corporate Governance said: “Botany Bay in Broadstairs has proved incredibly popular of late, providing the backdrop for high profile fashion shoots and for music videos by Emeli Sandé and now the talented Canadian singer / songwriter, Shawn Mendes.

“And who can blame them! It is the quintessential British bay, with spectacular views of white cliffs and beautiful chalk stacks. None of these shoots would happen without the hard work of our Film Officer, who works hand in glove with production teams to ensure Thanet is showcased in the best light.”
