The Island of Guernsey is set to be in the spotlight and star of the silver screen in 2018, thanks to a big screen adaptation of a best-selling novel!

Guernsey has been a constant inspiration for all who have visited, along with being the birth place of the International best selling book, ‘The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society’, penned by Mary Ann Schaffer and completed by her niece, Annie Burrows. The book tells the Island’s story under German Occupation, through a series of letters. Mary Ann travelled to Guernsey on a whim in 1980 but found herself stranded on the Island due to fog, she picked up a book about the Island’s wartime past, and was completely hooked, you could say the rest was history.

The book has now been adapted into a feature film set for release in 2018, directed by Mike Newell, starring Hollywood A-lister Lily James, the spirited story sets the scene of the lead character’s journey of self discovery and fascination for the Island.

We’re inviting you to inspire your customers to visit Guernsey and create their own story.
