The East of England is certainly no bit-part player when it comes to the silver screen.

North Norfolk’s Holkham Beach dwarfed Gwyneth Paltrow in Shakespeare in Love and Norwich’s Sainsbury Centre of Visual Arts doubled as the New York HQ of Marvel’s Avengers. Elsewhere, Suffolk and Norfolk took centre stage in Danny Boyle’s Yesterday, which was penned by Suffolk resident Richard Curtis and featured an extensive cameo performance from fellow East Anglian, Ed Sheeran.

As well as the numerous Hollywood locations, film lovers will also find no shortage of international film festivals, independent arthouse cinemas and regular film nights.
