Second chance to see town WW1 film


There’s a second chance to see the First World War film first shown to mark the centenary of the outbreak of the conflict last September.

Horncastle History & Heritage Society have arranged a special showing at the Stanhope Hall Meeting Room on Wednesday February 21 at 7.30pm.

The showing will last just under two hours and includes original footage of the assassination of Franz Ferdinand as well as original Imperial War Museum footage of troops going to the front.

The showing will also feature a recently produced film commemorating the Grimsby Pals, some of whom came from the Horncastle area. The society has also put together a sequence of real life anecdotes as told by a soldier in the trenches and to conclude a short film giving an overview of the war.

The cost for non-members is £2. To book call 01507 523091 as places are limited.
