Hollywood comes to Cadgwith

Scenes for "Ladies in Lavender", a feature film directed by Charles Dance, were shot in Cadgwith. The Cove was returned to the 1930's for a few days for theis drama, starring Maggie Smith and Judi Dench.

Back in time
Cadgwith goes back in time! The village is dressed to look like the 1930s.

Business as usual
Business as usual!

The Fishermen learn their lines
Local fishermen act as extras. Here you can see them receiving last minute instructions.

Rain machine
The script calls for pouring rain, unfortunately we had glorious sunshine for most of September. A huge gantry sprays thousands of gallons of water to get the required look.

By special arrangement with the distributors, copies of the film on DVD and VHS can be purchased here.
