Lovely Aldeburgh on the Suffolk Coast
was shown at the Aldeburgh cinema with a Q&A afterwards with Sophie Neville who played Titty speaking to the actress Diana Quick.
Sophie was signing the last first edition copies of ‘The Making of Swallows & Amazons’.
Opposite the cinema, books by Arthur Ransome, who once lived in Suffolk
adorn the shelves of the award-wining Aldeburgh Bookshop
The sun shone and holiday makers enjoyed the beach
where you can buy fresh seafood and chat to the fisherman.
Swallow, the lugsail dingy that starred in the 1974 film
was sailing with the Aldeburgh Junior Lapwings who had a Swallows and Amazons regatta that weekend. You can read about what they got up to here.
