Silver Screen – The Great Escape

Tues 2 & Tues 16 Nov 2021
  • Drama

This event takes place at Burbidge Gallery

Join us for Afternoon Tea followed by a screening of The Great Escape in our brand-new Screen Room.

Imprisoned during World War II in a German POW camp, a group of Allied soldiers are intent on breaking out, not only to escape, but also to draw Nazi forces away from battle to search for fugitives. Among the prisoners determined to escape are American Captain Virgil Hilts (Steve McQueen) and British Squadron Leader Roger Bartlett (Richard Attenborough). Outwitting their captors by digging a tunnel out of the prison grounds, the soldiers find the stakes much higher when escape becomes a reality.

Doors will open from 12noon with Afternoon Tea served from 12.30pm on our 1st floor Burbidge Gallery. You will then be escorted to our brand-new Screen Room to watch the acclaimed 1963 wartime drama.

Please note: places for Silver Screen events are limited and must be booked in advance. Early booking is recommended.
