Somme 16 is an independent feature film inspired by the true events of Albert Ernest Peeke a Private in the 1st Battalion East Yorkshire Regiment during the Great War.

Somme 16 focuses on key events which took place from the 1st July 1916 to Albert’s untimely death on 16th September 1916 during the first day for the Battle of Flers-Courcelette.

Due to the rural location of our shoot close to Folkestone we are ideally looking to cast talent from the Kent area, but a small amount of basic accommodation will be available on location for suitable applicants from further afield.

As you can imagine the safety and well being of our talent and crew during any production is of the utmost importance to us, and as a result of the current situation we all find ourselves in it is with regret that we have unfortunately decided to move production of Somme16 back to the summer of 2021, this is mainly due to the impossible task of being able to shoot in the confinement of a WW1 trench with current social distancing restrictions, however if safe to do so we will look into shooting all scenes involving the character of Emma Peeke and associated talent this year.
