Writer Richard Curtis is to attend Southwold's outdoor cinema this Saturday for a screening of his 2019 hit film featuring Ed Sheeran - Yesterday.

Curtis, who lives on the Suffolk coast, will host a question and answer session with film-goers at 7pm before the screening starts.

The 64-year-old and his wife Emma Freud have been supporting the cinema, on Southwold Common, by donating many of Curtis' films to be shown.

The cinema has been organised by My Southwold Business Partnership and is being supported by the town council.
