Dads Army Hits Bridlington!

Wow, I have had a busy month in November and December and just realised I have completely neglected my blog! Naughty me. So I am back and I have loads to blog about before the year is up. Firstly, it has been such a fantastic time in Bridlington for the community. It has been the home for a few weeks for the Dads Army crew for their new film to be released in 2016. I myself, was even lucky to have them film on the same street, five doors down. 

Their main filing took place on the Old Town High Street of Bridlington. The shops were painted and completely transformed into a Walmington-on-sea. Many people visited from across Yorkshire. It's a shame it wasn't summer, it was a little chilly stood watching :)

Here are some of the shops....

I popped down to the old town on a couple of occasions to have a go at star spotting. As a little girl I grew up watching Dads Army regularly with my grandad. I cannot wait to see the film. 

I was also lucky enough to get nearly face to face with Catherine Zeta Jones. She was absolutely beautiful. She arrived and left the set in a blacked out car but it was amazing to see her filming from a distance and then see her close up. The town was full of excitement. 

They filmed during the day and at night. Using a large light in the sky to create moonlight upon the high street. I was lucky enough to have them film outside my house using this. They turned all the standard street lights off and this was the only light.

The film isn't due out till apparently 2016. That seems like such a long time! I'm sure Bridlington will be counting down the days.
