Dorset town becomes film location
Morris dancers
Morris dancing is a traditional English folk custom.
Part of one of the UK's most exclusive seaside towns is being transformed into California's Venice Beach for a film.

Filming has begun for a comedy drama about morris dancing entitled, Morris: A Life with Bells On, set in part at Sandbanks Beach in Poole, Dorset.

The film stars English classical actor, Sir Derek Jacobi, and follows a team of morris dancers as they struggle to evolve their art.

Last week Poole was also chosen to have its own customised Monopoly board.

In 2006 a housing report found Poole to be the most unaffordable town in the UK.
