A film shot extensively around the Norfolk and Suffolk coast with two up and coming movie stars is to get its regional premiere on Saturday.

The Scouting Book for Boys will be shown at Great Yarmouth's Hollywood Cinema as a thank you to staff at the Broadland Sands Holiday Park at Corton, near Lowestoft, where large chunks of the film were shot.

Released nationally on March 19 the film is about best friends David and Emily who live a care free existence on a caravan park.

Starring Thomas Turgoose of This is England fame, and Holliday Grainger, who starred in the film Awaydays, The Scouting Book for Boys takes a dark turn when Emily is forced to run away and live on a cave on a remote beach as police search for her.
