The New Dad's Army Film.

With the recent Universal Pictures 'Dads Army 'filming in Bridlington Old Town's Georgian High Street as Walmington On Sea, including a superb St Georges Day Parade lead by Bridlington's Own Town Crier David Hinde in the cameo role of the Walmington-On-Sea Town Crier watched by the Mayor of Walmington-On-Sea, former Mayor of Bridlington Cllr Cyril Marsburg, many of Old Town's businesses were used for individual shop sets in the film. The film opened worldwide in Cinemas on February 5th 2016 after a World Film Premiere at Leicester Square London.

Bridlington’s Old Town 1940’s Summer Festival on Sunday June 11th 2017 will be the place to be. The 1940's Festival area stretches from the 900 year old Priory Church (visited in 2013 by HRH Prince of Wales & HRH Duchess of Cornwall) & Priory Green, up the ancient High Street to Westgate, Westgate Park and the Market Place.
