Waterloo Lives: Pop-up Cinema

Things to do Free

To commemorate the 200 year anniversary of the Battle of Waterloo, the National Army Museum are taking over the atmospheric Vaults below Waterloo station for an evening of classic cinema. The 1970s film 'Waterloo' starring Rod Steiger and Christopher Plummer is known for its historical accuracy, and with three-quarters of Brits recently admitting to have little knowledge of the battle, it seems like a good place to start. A family-friendly event will take place between 2pm-4pm, with suitable sections of the film being played alongside games and activities to entertain the kids. A full screening will take place later in the day where food and drink will be served up to viewers. Demand for tickets is already extremely high meaning they are being allocated via a ballot system, with each person able to apply for up to four free tickets. Register by 6pm on Aug 27 here.
