if I didn't have so much going on at the weekend I might have been tempted onto the streets of Winchester - the city about 20 minutes away from our home. Parts of the city around the cathedral and winchester college are extremely old and provide a perfect historical setting which is why scenes from Les Miserables are currently being filmed there.
Though I couldn't make it over to Winchester I caught up with the gossip from one of my friends who happens to live at the end of College Street where filming was taking place.
She took a wander around the street at night noticing lots of horses and bonnets but no sign of Russell Crowe, Anne Hathaway or the list of stars reputedly due in Winchester to film. As she pointed out it's not all glamour living in such a stunning location - due to night time filming she had to suffer floodlights shining into the bedroom at the back of her house throughout the night. Might as well don your bonnet then and venture onto the streets!
