This is an exclusive opportunity to immerse yourself in a film set on a location shoot in the heart of the British Countryside!

The video is a trailer being adapted from the novel Gin And It by writer Elaine Sturgess and is being Directed by Award Winning American Director Andrea Meyerson.

You will get to stay in a private retreat with catering by a personal chef, including all meals, drinks and snacks. Chaperoned throughout your day, you’ll get to see exactly what goes on behind the scenes, and if you want to, be an extra in one of the shoots. You’ll have dinner with cast and crew and will meet the key people. Aside from being there as the cameras roll, you’ll also enjoy a full day excursion to one of the most famous British TV sets of all time, Highclere Castle, the setting for Downton Abbey. We’ll also take you to the “real Hetherington”, the village in the story of the book!

This is an exceptional once-in-a-lifetime chance – and as well as enjoying something totally unique, you will also be contributing to the project, which, although in the form of a comedy and mystery, has an important message about acceptance and being non judgemental.

For me, as the writer, this represents an exceptionally bittersweet moment, since the book was written in memory of my amazing wife, who passed away from cancer a little over 7 years ago. Her wit, wisdom, kindness, humour and that touch of wickedness that I fell in love with – and stayed in love with for over 17 years, is contained in the pages of this book and will be captured on camera for all time. So thank you, thank you, thank you for your generous support.

PLEASE NOTE: £180 (approx.$250) of the deposit is non refundable. The balance of the payment is due 60 days before departure by June 6th 2018. Deposits are non refundable for cancellations after June 6th 2018 and for cancellations after July 5th, the full amount is non refundable.

To cover unexpected personal circumstances that might prevent you from travelling, we recommend you secure appropriate insurance cover.

Payments will be made to Raise A Laugh Publishing.
