Charlie Haylock advises on The Dig Suffolk History

Charlie Haylock and “The Dig” – We welcome the Coddenham History Club to the Coddenham Centre on Friday 29th July at 7.30pm. Members Free* and Visitors £.3.00, on the Door.

This is an intriguing and sometimes hilarious look behind-the-scenes in the making of the Netflix film “The Dig” . . . a film based on a novel with the same title about the famous Sutton Hoo burial ship and the people involved.

Charlie will explain how a potential “scam” email from “The Dig” producer, turned out to be real, and was followed by a phone call from Ralph Fiennes.

Charlie will show how Ralph Fiennes, who played Basil Brown, and the other “Suffolk” actors learnt their Suffolk accent  . . . and not sound like West Country pirates !

Charlie will also explain the extreme lengths Ralph Fiennes took, not only to play Basil Brown . . . but to become Basil Brown.

The talk is both informative and very entertaining

*Why not join the History Club for access to the full programme and archives for just £8 a year.
