Basildon Gets All Hollywood | The Daily Dust delivering the best bric a brac, daily news and events with a British flavour

Hollywood Raw

The English town of Basildon is to get its very own Hollywood-style signpost.

Basildon council decided to erect the sign to welcome visitors to the Essex town.

Each letter on the sign will be 5 ft tall (compared to 45 ft on the Hollywood sign) and will be illuminated at night.

The sign (costing £90,000) is part of a £400,000 project to help boost Basildon’s image and increase economic growth. 

Whether the Hollywood-style sign will start to attract the odd movie star to the town is another question though.
