Wymondham Regal pays tribute to Margaret Lockwood
A star of the silver screen will arrive in Wymondham next month to pay tribute to the late actress Margaret Lockwood.
Actress Jean Kent, 90, is scheduled to appear at a screening of The Wicked Lady at the Regal Experience on November 6.
The movie was Gainsborough Studio's most commercially successful film of the 1940s and Jean, who lives in Suffolk, had a cameo role.
She also starred in classics such as Trottie True and The Browning Version.
Once Britain's biggest box office star, Margaret died in 1990 aged 73.
