A Live broadcast celebrating the 75th anniversary of the Battle of Britian will be show at the Reel cinema in Grantham this Friday.

‘The Battle Of Britain At 75’ tells the epic story of the greatest aerial conflict of the Second World War. This live cinema experience comes from Biggin Hill in south-east London, the most iconic of Britain’s fighter stations.

BBC Radio 2’s Dermot O’Leary and Jeremy Vine will be joined by the BBC Concert Orchestra and musicians from across the armed forces as they share untold stories from the battle.

Rare archive footage from the conflict, modern day RAF personnel, guest singers and a cast of actors will bring those stories to life as Britain remembers the men and women who lost their lives 75 years ago.

A 30 minute programme - exclusive to cinemas - will include a close up tour of a Spitfire and veteran fighter pilots recounting their memories of the Battle Of Britain.

‘The Battle Of Britain At 75’ comes from the producers of the multi-award winning ‘D-Day 70 Years On’. It starts at 7.30pm.

Tickets are available from the cinema or go to www.reelcinemas.co.uk to book.
