Poldark fans will get the chance to grill the BBC series’ makers at an INK Festival fundraiser.

Producers Rebecca Keane, Damien Timmer and Karen Thrussell of Mammoth Screen, as well as acclaimed Poldark writer Debbie Horsfield will discuss how the drama found new life on our screens and the challenges of casting some of fiction’s most romantic roles.

The question and answer session, hosted by Helen Atkinson Wood, will include exclusive, previously unseen clips from the series. There will also be food, drink and a raffle with an auction for a waistcoat worn by lead actor Aidan Turner.

It’s being held at Walberswick Village Hall, from 6.45pm, February 17.

Tickets are £15 and available from Walberswick Tuck Shop or by emailing
