Dulverton Films presents THE LAND GIRLS (Cert 12) directed by David Leland.

During World War II, the organisation ‘The Women’s Land Army’ recruited women to work on British farms while the men were off to war. Three such ‘land girls’ of different social backgrounds – quiet Stella, young hairdresser Prue, and Cambridge graduate Ag – become best friends in spite of their different backgrounds.

Filmed mostly in and near Dulverton and the West Somerset Railway in 1997 starring Catherine McCormack, Rachel Weisz, Anna Friel, Steven Mackintosh, plus many local Exmoor people as extras. Watch an Armed Service march in High Street and the dance scene with a band playing on our Town Hall stage with the same proscenium arch as you watch the film on our screen!
