Join us for a special screening of the documentary Lancaster

‘Lancaster’ tells the story of the iconic Second World War bomber through the words of the last surviving veterans of the conflict, set in the context of the time. Starting with the Blitz we follow our 38 contributors as they join up, learn to fly and go to war. With the enemy strong and RAF Bomber Command badly equipped losses were high, but eventually the tide turned with the introduction of the Lancaster.

For there was a deadly price to be paid in the lethal night skies over Germany – more than 55,000 aircrew and 600,000 civilians were killed. Such was the cost of defeating the Nazis and restoring peace in Europe.

‘Lancaster’ is produced by Haviland Digital, Trevor Beattie Films and British Film Company and is now available on DVD in stores around the country.
