Join Us To Celebrate An Extraordinary Film And An Extraordinary Award

The Gala Screening of Zulu on Tuesday 10th June is an opportunity to say thank you and to honour those who serve so selflessly on our behalf.

The evening will involve a red carpet ceremony in Leicester Square and an exclusive screening of the digitally remastered classic, celebrating 50 years since its first release. The film tells the story of the Battle of Rorke’s Drift, and on that day in 1879 eleven Victoria Crosses — the highest accolade for valour — were awarded to those who fought.
