The Great Escape with Dan Snow (PG)

Commemorating the 75th Anniversary of the legendary escape.
On the 75th anniversary of The Great Escape, historian and presenter Dan Snow hosts a commemorative evening at the Hammersmith Apollo featuring The D-Day Darlings and special guests. The show will culminate with a gala screening of the re-released 1963 cult film, starring Steve McQueen. The famous Triumph TR6 motorcycle, ridden by Steve McQueen in the dramatic fence-jump scene, will make a rare appearance on stage.

The live show will feature the Britain’s Got Talent finalists, performing a specially created arrangement of the film’s iconic theme tune. Dan Snow will hear from veterans of the Second World War’s most daring escape and will explore the history and science behind the operation with renowned historian Paul Beaver and Dr Hugh Hunt of the University of Cambridge.

Audiences will discover how Squadron Leader Roger ‘Big X’ Bushell’s ingenious plan inspired one of the most famous war films of all time.

This is a cinema event. Live show broadcast from the Hammersmith Apollo.
