I’m so proud to live in Norfolk. Over the last fifteen years I have witnessed a gradual change in the air. You name it – shopping, eating, music, entertainment, fashion – Norfolk is now a very ‘cool’ place to live. Norwich has become a buzzing metropolis full of independent restaurants, vintage boutiques, excellent pubs and quirky bars. The University of East Anglia means that now some pretty mainstream bands come to play here, which makes me very happy. I do love a good gig.
On top of all this, ten minutes out of the city and you are in the most beautiful countryside. Keep going and you get to the sea. Here in Norfolk we have miles and miles of the most beautiful coastline, which I love so much. Whether it’s a traditional fish and chip seaside town, peaceful broads surrounded by reeds, or sand dunes and wide sandy beaches, we have it all. And you’re never, ever far away from a really good restaurant or boutique hotel. (Or glamping in tree houses or teepees if that floats your boat.)
So it’s not really surprising that more and more photographic and film shoot crews are choosing to come to Norfolk. As well as the big skies, big beaches and rolling green countryside, they can also choose to shoot at elegant stately homes, rustic period farmhouses, stunning architect designed glass houses, beach shacks or converted barns. There’s something for every campaign no matter how large or small. I’m so excited for my house to now be available as a shoot location at East Coast Production.
