War Horse screening marks Centenary at National Memorial Arboretum


An outdoor screening of Stephen Spielberg’s film War Horse will be held at the National Memorial Arboretum on 22 July as part of the centre’s commemorations of the Centenary of the First World War.

The event follows the recent visit to the Arboretum of 93-year-old Dorothy Ellis, whose husband, Wilfred Ellis, inspired the original War Horse novel by Michael Morpurgo.

Magnificent surroundings

Sarah Montgomery, managing director of the Arboretum, said: ‘The screening of War Horse is a wonderful addition to our diverse First World War Centenary commemorative programme.

‘This will be the first occasion where members of the public can enjoy the magnificent surroundings of the National Memorial Arboretum at dusk. Visitors will be watching a fantastic war-time film within feet of the floodlit Armed Forces Memorial in the First World War Centenary year.’
