SOLVA has been confirmed as the location for an exciting new film project this summer - and you could be a part of the lights, camera, action.

Dylan Thomas’ best loved play Under Milk Wood is being shot in the harbour village for approximately six weeks, starting June 23.

It stars popular Welsh actor Rhys Ifans and is produced and directed by Kevin Allen.

The film will be shot in both Welsh and English, with the former being broadcast on S4C at Christmas and the latter sold for worldwide viewing.

There is a chance to be part of this exciting new production with auditions for extras being held at Solva Memorial Hall on Thursday, May 29 between 4pm and 7pm.

Bruce Payne, the clerk of Solva Community Council, said they are over the moon that Solva has been chosen as a location.

He said: "It's absolutely fabulous for Solva and the local community. It will bring a lot of attention to the area, especially from a world-wide perspective. We have worked very closely with the National Park and National Trust and are looking forward to the start of filming."

Under Milk Wood is the latest in a long line of Hollywood films which have been filmed in Pembrokeshire, including Robin Hood and Snow White and the Huntsman.
