Filming is to take place at Norwich Cathedral this month for a period drama.

The filming is set to start on Thursday and last for most of the month. Details of what drama the filming is for have not yet been released.

Previously Norwich Cathedral was used as one of the film locations for the movie Jack the Giant Slayer starring Ewan McGregor.

A statement on Norwich Cathedral’s website said: “Due to the filming of a period drama, there will be potential disruptions for people visiting the Cathedral Thursday 05 – Wednesday 25 June.

“The filming will predominantly take place in the Cloister, but also includes the Dark Entry, south aisle and Presbytery in the Cathedral. This may restrict access to certain parts of the Cathedral at various times, but the Cathedral will remain open to visitors throughout the filming and services will continue as normal.

“Staff and volunteers are aware of the filming schedule and will be on hand to provide relevant information to visitors.”

People who have questions about how the filming may affect their visit should call 01603 218300 or email
