Movie cameras return to town
IT seems Hollywood simply cannot stay away from Sherborne.
Just days after star Carey Mulligan finished filming for a new adaptation of Thomas Hardy's Far From the Madding Crowd, the town has welcomed the cameras back for another high-profile film project.
This time, the life story of one of Sherborne's most famous residents is set for a dramatic retelling on the big screen – with the town taking a leading role in the start of the film.
Filming for The Imitation Game, a biopic about Second World War code- breaker Alan Turing, who attended Sherborne School from 1926 until 1936, began at the private boarding school for boys on Sunday.
