Hollywood glamour comes to Fen Ditton

Well, almost...

Filming started today of a BBC adaptation of Alexander Masters' book 'Stuart: A Life Backwards'. This is a story of a Cambridge man, partly set in Fen Ditton - see here for information.

The former Post Office has been transformed back into a 'shop' for the duration - unfortunately the new sign and rather fetching window display are just for show.

A fleet of lorries and vans has taken over the Blue Lion car park. There is no parking in much of the High Street, and marshals are directing traffic along it.

You can read the BBC press release of the story here. The film is being made by Neal Street Productions.
