On the Friday evening of the Festival (17 August) we are very pleased to be screening the influential film Oh! What A Lovely War, released in 1969. A musical satire about the events of the First World War, it was based on a stage play of the same name and uses many of the popular songs of the period.

Michael Attenborough, son of the film’s director Richard Attenborough, and himself an acclaimed theatre director, will discuss the film.
