West Suffolk has appeared as the backdrop to documentaries, television programmes and Hollywood movies. We are very supportive of the film industry and work with Screen Suffolk (the official film office for Suffolk) and local businesses to help productions not only find their ideal setting but also the support they need for their cast and crew.

One recent film shot in West Suffolk was The Personal History of David Copperfield, Armando Iannucci’s adaptation of the Charles Dickens classic. Click the image below to watch the advert for the film and spot Bury St Edmunds in some of the scenes.

The industry is not only important for helping support local businesses but also is linked to our tourism offer and further helps attract visitors.

Screen Suffolk offers a county-wide ‘one-stop’ film service, from initial enquiry through to crew sourcing and permits. They promote Suffolk’s film service infrastructure, creative talent and fantastic locations, all within easy reach of London. Their aim is to make Suffolk the most film-friendly county in the UK.
