Join David Whiteley and special guests for a screening of his RTS East Award winning film The Galaxy Britain Built, followed by a Q&A 

The Galaxy Britain Built is a 60 minute documentary looking at the British contribution to one of the biggest movies ever, Star Wars.

Presenter Star Wars super fan David Whiteley, who has his own connection to the original film (he was born on May 4th) - tracks down the often-modest British talent who brought the galaxy to life, and reveals the secrets of the creation of some of the most famous costumes, props and sets in movie history. From St Maarten to LA and London to Oxfordshire, David travels the globe to meet some of the true heroes who worked on the original film. The BBC Four documentary was first shown at Christmas 2017 and received critical acclaim. It has been shown to a global audience on BBC World News and the film also won ‘Best Factual Programme’ at the RTS East Awards 2019. Produced and Presented by David Whiteley. Directed and Edited by Matt Wildash

The evening will be hosted by the film’s presenter, David Whiteley, followed by a Q and A after. A must for any Star Wars fan! Special guests TBC.
