Netflix dialect coach to speak in Norfolk church 

The dialect coach who helped teach actor Ralph Fiennes “how to speak Suffolk” on the Sutton Hoo Netflix film The Dig, will be speaking at a Norfolk church in October to help raise funds for Norwich Foodbank.

In honour of Her Majesty the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee, the residents of Bergh Apton have this year organised a series of cultural events in the beautiful medieval church of St Peter and St Paul to raise money for church funds and support charities across the county.

It began in April with an ‘Antiques Roadshow’ style antique valuation event at which experts from Keys of Aylsham, one of Norfolk’s premier fine art valuers and auctioneers helped visitors understand the history and value of their precious antiques.

This was followed by a series of concerts, storytelling evenings and a performance by Andrew Peterson, one of the United States’ foremost Christian songwriter / singers from Tennessee.

The next event in the calendar promises to be very enjoyable as, on Saturday October 15, the church hosts Charlie Haylock, the dialect coaching expert who worked with Ralph Fiennes to help him “speak Suffolk” during the shooting of the Netflix film The Dig about the excavation of an almost entirely intact Anglo Saxon burial ship at Sutton Hoo.

As well as being a gifted teacher of dialect, Charlie is also a historian of the English language and an expert in dialects across the country. His one man shows are famous, not only for being entertaining and informative, but also for reducing his audience to tears of laughter. A wonderful evening awaits!

The evening starts at 7pm and there will be refreshments available.

Tickets are £12 and are available by telephoning 01508 558440 or online here.

Proceeds from the evening are to be shared between the church and the Norwich Foodbank, where it will help to support those in our area most affected by the current cost of living crisis.
