An Oxfordshire town is £10,000 better off after allowing Ricky Gervais to film scenes from his new film 'Cemetary Junction' in the Town Hall.

The money will most likely now go back into refurbishing Woodstock's Community Centre. 

Scenes were filmed last August and the townspeople were asked to remove cars from the streets. The £10,000 donation has been given in addition to the £1,000 it cost to hire out the hall.

They filmed scenes for the movie in the Town Hall and by the Bear Pub. The town was chosen for it's timeless feel to depict Reading in the early 1970s.
