The Great Escape (PG) with Dan Snow – 75th Anniversary Screening

On the 75th anniversary of The Great Escape, Dan Snow hosts a commemorative evening featuring The D-Day Darlings and special guests, culminating with a gala screening of the remastered 1963 cult film, starring Steve McQueen.

The live show from London’s Eventim Apollo, Hammersmith will feature Britain’s Got Talent finalists, performing classics such as The White Cliffs of Dover, Don’t Sit Under The Apple Tree and a specially created arrangement of the iconic theme tune.
