Ludlow Food Centre to Co-Host Atonement Event

Stokesay Court

The Ludlow Food Centre is to co-host an event on 21st February celebrating the worldwide success of British film Atonement, adapted from the Ian McEwan novel and filmed on location at nearby Stokesay Court.

The film, directed by Joe Wright and produced by Working Title, has already won two Golden Globes and is nominated for 14 BAFTAs and 7 Academy Awards. The DVD, which features deleted scenes involving scores of Ludlow residents, is scheduled for release 4th February and is No.2 in the DVD charts before it even goes on sale.

Supported by Advantage West Midlands, the event will take national and regional representatives from British film, tourism and regeneration agencies around Stokesay on the new Atonement location tour, taking in recognisable viewpoints from the film such as the library, drawing room, fountain and lake where Cecilia (Keira Knightley) goes swimming. Guests will then move on to the Food Centre where a locally sourced lunch will be laid on the first floor conference suite.

Ludlow Food Centre and Stokesay Court now represent two of the town’s most high profile visitor attractions, each generating worldwide publicity and serving to raise awareness of the South Shropshire region as both a leading travel destination and premier filming location.
