Salmon fishing in Cheddar
PUBLISHED: 11:13 06 September 2012
LESS than a year after the star was spotted filming in Cheddar, Ewan McGregor returns - with a local theatre screening his latest feelgood comedy title.
Starring Emily Blunt and Kristin Scott Thomas alongside the loveable Scot, Salmon Fishing In The Yemen sees McGregor, a fisheries expert, approached to help realise a sheik’s vision of bringing the sport of fly-fishing to the desert.
The action takes place in Scotland and the Middle East, a gentle romantic comedy which proved so popular with audiences.
The Yemeni tourist board even warned British tourists the country does not have a salmon fishing industry, such was the power of the film’s success.
Salmon Fishing In The Yemen is playing at The Kings Theatre at The Kings Of Wessex School in Station Road, Cheddar, at 7pm on September 12.
Tickets, priced £4.50-5.50 are available via www.kowessex.co.uk/cheddarArts/ or by calling 01934 744939.
