Multiple cast members were shooting today at the Portwenn school!

Today filming took place at the school, where the Portwenn Gig Festival was taking place. Filming included the festival taking place within the school grounds, and then outside the school gates, where an apparent accident, or near miss occured with Louisa's new car.

Some of the actors and actresses on hand today include:

Due to the filming taking place within the school grounds, it was difficult to get a close up view, so some of the video below was shot from the otherside of the harbour, using full zoom, so apologies for the shakey and less than top quality visuals.
