A HIP Hop performer transformed a historic hall into a Medieval court when he used it as the venue for his latest music video.

Dagenham rapper William Alaneme, also known as SwiftKnight, and his entourage of damsels, make-up artists, film crew, and two large snakes, took over Ingatestone Hall for the day to shoot the video for his new single, Demolition Man.

The shoot, which took 15 hours, features the musician saving a princess and overthrowing a corrupt king. Lord Petre’s home provided the perfect backdrop for.

The shoot had an overall crew of 25, used 25 actors, ten models, two snakes, five make-up artists, and £300 worth of food and drink to keep everyone going.
