We were happy to read this week that the European premiere of Armando Iannucci’s The Personal History Of David Copperfield will be at the BFI London Film Festival on October 2nd. The film uses three different Suffolk locations all within the stunning town of Bury St Edmunds. We helped the production turn Angel Square, the main square in the town, and Chequers Square into Victorian London.
On a blistering hot day last July Angel Square, which usually serves as a car park for shoppers, was covered in straw and dirt and an army of extras in period dress as well as countless horses descended on the town.
We can’t wait to see how the film will positively effect Bury St Edmunds not only as a filming location but also as a tourist destination. Read more about the benefits of filming here.
