A blue plaque is to be unveiled to remember the BBC's World War Two-set sitcom 'Allo 'Allo at an event which will see many of the cast reunited.

The British Comedy Society (BCS) is unveiling the plaque at Lynford Hall, Mundford, near Thetford, Norfolk, where exteriors of Cafe Rene were filmed.

The event will take place on 7 September.

BCS director Aaron Brown said it was important to remember one of the "great British comedies"

"It was a huge hit in Britain and internationally. It ran for nine series for 10 years, twice as long as the war itself," said Mr Brown.

David Croft, who co-created the sitcom, had earlier used Thetford for location shooting for his comedy series Dad's Army, although it was actually set in a fictional seaside town.

As a kid, I didn't really appreciate how intelligent the comedy was, it takes brains to write really good slapstick and daft humour, 'Allo 'Allo is one of those oddities that resonated around Europe because it was so silly.
