The Spitfire Society presents...
Battle of Britain Film Festival

< Back to Whats On

Please note: This event is in the past and is available as a reference only.

Welcome to the launch of The Battle of Britain Film Festival.

The schedule for the day will be as follows:

9:15am - Film screening of Spitfire: Inspiration of a Nation (PG)

This film is an epic tale of determination, vision and courage. It is the story of an aeroplane that was forged in competition, shaped as the war clouds gathered and refined in the white heat of combat – going on to become the most famous fighter aircraft ever made.

12:30pm - Film screening of Lancaster Skies (PG)

This film is a loving homage to the classic British war films of the 40s and 50s. It tells the story of Douglas Miller, a broken, solitary, Spitfire ace, who survived the Battle of Britain.  Douglas must take the place of a Lancaster Bomber crew's cherished and respected skipper, who was killed in action. With the crew against him, he must gain their trust and overcome his past to become the leader they so desperately need.

2.45pm - Presentations & book signing

Presentations by Dr Emily Mayhew on the Guinea Pig Club, story of the pilots treated for burns at the Queen Victoria Hospital in East Grinstead.  Vice-President Paul Beaver on the role of Fleet Air Arm pilots in the Battle of Britain. 

Both authors will be available for book signings and their respective books will be available for purchase on the day.

3:45pm - Film screening of The Secret Spitfires (PG)

In 1940, the Germans destroyed the Spitfire factories in Southampton and believed they had ended the threat from their nemesis. But unknown to them, the British were building Spitfires in secret.
