Event description
You’re invited to join us for an evening of film like you’ve (probably) never seen before! We’re talking a groundbreaking war documentary, made even more dramatic with live musical accompaniment by Gladstone’s Bag six-piece orchestra.
Our monthly ‘best before bed’ film session brings you The Battle of the Somme. This 1916 British documentary and propaganda war film was shot by Geoffrey Malins and John McDowell. It depicts the British Army in the preliminaries and early days of the Battle of the Somme (1 July – 18 November 1916). We’re talking trench warfare, marching infantry, artillery firing on German positions, British troops waiting to attack on 1 July, treatment of wounded British and German soldiers, and much more. Fun fact: a scene during which British troops crouch in a ditch then "go over the top" was staged for the camera behind the lines.
Reserve your seat, settle into an armchair with a glass of wine, and let the experience begin!
