THE cast of this summer’s hotly anticipated film The World’s End will be coming back to Letchworth GC, where much of it was filmed, for a gala event before the end of the year, the production company confirmed.

Actor Simon Pegg and director Edgar Wright have promised a return visit.

The film which, premieres in London tonight (Wednesday), is about five friends united for a pub crawl they failed to finish in their youth.

The movie was largely shot in Letchworth GC, from September 2012 to March this year, and many locations are expected to crop up on screen, including the cinema and the railway station – which in the film is transformed into a pub.

Tickets for a midnight screening at Broadway Cinema on July 19 are on sale now, with a big attraction being the chance to watch The World’s End in one of the locations featured in the film.
