Kray twins film shot at council HQ in cinemas

Legend - courtA film about the Kray twins featuring scenes at Surrey County Council’s headquarters is to hit cinema screens tomorrow (Wednesday 9 September).

Legend, which sees actor Tom Hardy play both Ronald and Reginald Kray, tells the story of how the twins ruled London’s East End in the 1960s.

It is one of a number of high-profile productions to use County Hall for filming, which generates around £150,000 annually that is reinvested in services.

Programmes like EastEnders, Holby City and Midsomer Murders have also used the building to film scenes and the courtroom used in Downton Abbey can be hired for weddings.

Social media tips for businesses

An event to show businesses how social media can benefit their company is being run by Surrey County Council’s libraries service.

The session, which takes place at Guildford Library on Friday 25 September, is part of the monthly Digital Friday workshops and will explain to businessmen and women how using platforms such as Twitter and Facebook can help their company.

The free event runs from 10am to 1pm and tickets can be booked online.

Surrey Fire and Rescue Service is offering advice and support to companies across the county as part of UK Business Safety Week (7-13 September).
