Wanstead Barber turned film set on Monday. Arc lights, props, thick cables, actors, blokes standing around on the pavement, that sort of thing. But not Mike Leigh this timeÂ – it was just an advert, rather than high filmic art.
The shop is looking so smart after its refurbishment it’s not surprising it caught some location scout’s eye. The product in question is not yet known (shop staff are sworn to secrecy) until early Jan when the advert will be shown.
