To celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the classic film Zulu, a gala premiere in London’s Leicester Square on Tuesday 10 June.

In attendance will be none other than His Royal Highness Prince Harry!

Shot on location in South Africa in 1964, Zulu retells the story of The Battle of Rorke’s Drift, in which 150 Victorian soldiers held off a horde of 4,000 Zulu warriors. Featuring some of the most heart-pounding battle sequences ever committed to film, Zulu is also notable for having Michael Caine’s first performance as a leading man .

The screening on Tuesday will be packed with all sorts of excitement. Broadcaster and film critic Mark Kermode will be introducing the film, and throughout the evening, guests will be entertained by a military male voice choir. There will also be screenings of never-before-seen deleted footage from Zulu.

And who knows… you might just bump into a Prince while you’re there.

The Red Carpet event is being hosted by Walking with the Wounded, a British charity dedicated to supporting the wounded and helping them find new careers outside the military. To find out more and to buy tickets, head over to their website.
