The show must go on as Hollywood icons Steve Coogan and John C Reilly walked the streets of  Black Country Living Museum   in May 2017, one of the many  film locations   for comedy duo Laurel and Hardy biopic Stan & Ollie.

The film documents what would become their farewell tour of the UK and shows them facing dwindling audiences while airing old grievances, battling health issues and reminiscing about the past.

Laura Wakelin, Deputy Chief Executive of Marketing and Communications at the museum said: “We always enjoy welcoming film crews to BCLM but working with the Stan & Ollie team was particularly fun since there was so much of the Museum they wanted the actors to get involved in rather than just treating it like a set - like trying our fish and chips and riding on a trolleybus.

"It will be great to see how it looks on screen when the film’s released next week.”

Locations used at Black Country Living Museum can be seen during the official movie trailer below, these include the Museum's Old Birmingham Road, a ride on the trolleybus, Hobbs Fish & Chip shop, Canal Street and The Bottle & Glass Inn.
