“I am very proud to be a patron of Norfolk Screen, a service that encourages screen production in the glorious county of Norfolk as well as showcasing the talent and services that are on offer. Being born in Norfolk I am also aware of the endless possibilities the area can provide for filming locations and with a growth in the number of productions being made I couldn’t think of a more incredible place to film”.
