Watch Hot Fuzz from the iconic Somerset filming location


Hot Fuzz is perhaps one of the most popular films ever made in Somerset. When it hit theaters in 2007, viewers were thrilled with its genius parody of the well-worn cop movie.

Pair that with some excellent satire of English village life and you’re onto a winner. It’s hard to believe that Hot Fuzz – part of The Three Flavors Cornetto Trilogy written by Edgar Wright and Simon Pegg – is now 15 years old.

However, the storyline has aged well and is perhaps as hilarious today as it was in the 2000s. Outstanding London cop Nicholas Angel is unwittingly moved to a quaint English village and paired with a mindless new partner. . While on the beat, Nicholas suspects a sinister plot is afoot with the residents – spooky.

As any local fan of the film knows, virtually the entire story was shot in Wells. Places like the Bishop’s Palace, St Cuthbert’s Church, The Crown pub and the Swan Hotel provide the backdrop for Sergeant Angel’s hair-raising stint in Sandford.

Now you can relive the laughter of your youth with a special 15th anniversary screening of Hot Fuzz outside the Bishop’s Palace. The event was organized by Wells Film Theater staff, who said “the show will go on regardless of the weather”.

So this Friday, April 29, pull out a patch of grass for your picnic blanket or deck chair and sit back, relax and prepare to be transported to the idyllic village of Sandford. Tickets cost £25 each and include a pork roast, drink and goody bag.

Due to very strong language and strong comedic bloody violence, you must be 15 years or older to attend. You can find more details and book tickets here.
