Crown Simmons’ Highbury View scheme takes centre stage in new hit movie

Crown Simmons’ Highbury View Sheltered Scheme Manager, Graham Vine, and residents were delighted to be approached by the makers of the new Bridget Jones 3 movie who will be filming in the Highbury Terrace, Islington, area at the beginning of October.

The neighbourhood features some outstanding examples of period architecture and the producers of the movie, which stars Renée Zellweger and Colin Firth, asked permission from residents to use the location for exterior day and night scenes. The garden and conservatory of our delightful Georgian property will also be used as a facilities area by cast and crew.

So, when the movie hits the big screen later in the year don’t be surprised if you spy Graham and some of the residents in the background!
