Because you keep asking us. Thank you very much.” 😆

  • Some news about The Baker!

    A big thank you goes out to Ryan from Grosmont, the Welsh village that was the main site for the filming of The Baker starring and produced by Damian Lewis. Ryan shared information about the special, sold-out screening of the film in Monmouth, Wales on July 21st at the charming Savoy Theatre.

    Ryan said that Director Gareth Lewis was in attendance as well as Welsh actor Dyfan Dwyfor. The screening was offered by the producers as a thank you to the people of Grosmont and was followed by a reception at the Angel Inn which is featured in the movie as The Daffodil. The film’s producers have also made a charitable donation to the local Church of St. Nicholas to help with needed repairs.
