Watch A Weekend Of Classic World War Two Films

Look here, here's a top secret bit of information we need to keep from Jerry. Stratford Picturehouse is showing ten of the greatest Second World War films on the big screen over one weekend in July – basically, our chaps doing great feats of derring do and blowing up the enemy and that.

It all starts on 4 July with those marvellous POWs in The Great Escape, which I know we've all seen on the gogglebox every bally Christmas but this is an opportunity to see Steve McQueen jump that fence in style. There's also Kelly's Heroes, The Dirty Dozen, Ice Cold in Alex, The Desert Fox, The Guns of Navarone, Tora! Tora! Tora!, Battle of Britain, The Bridge on the River Kwai and The Dam Busters. It'll be absolutely top hole.

Tickets are 8 shillings – no, terribly sorry, 8 pounds 50 each. Chocks away, and we'll see you back in Blighty in time for tea!

Weekend at War runs 4-7 July at Stratford Picturehouse. Tickets are £8.50 adult / £6.50 concession / £5.50 child. For more information and to book, see the Picturehouse website.
