27th October sees a spectacular live reading of Michael Morpurgo’s War Horse. The author himself will read his poignant and emotionally-charged novel with co-narrator Joanna Lumley and accompanied by a specially-arranged score inspired by the music from the National Theatre production. Drawing live on stage, Olivier, Tony and OBIE award-winning British designer Rae Smith will create animated illustrations of Morpurgo’s book.

John Williams’ classic score to Jurassic Park gets its World Premier in November, as the iconic venue hosts Steven Spielberg’s 1993 masterpiece as a film-and-live-orchestra extravaganza. Special shows on 4th and 5th November will see the blockbuster screened in full – and in stunning high-definition on a giant screen – as the unforgettable music is played live on stage by the Royal Philharmonic Concert Orchestra.

As part of the Hall’s inaugural Festival Of Film, the venue will also be launching a brand new series of Film Tours. The Festival focuses on some of the 125 films and TV shows shot or set at the Hall, including three Hitchcock movies, The Ipcress File, and Spice World.

The festival also includes a 50th Anniversary screening of the most notable film shot at the Hall – The Man Who Knew Too Much –  with its classic, nerve-shredding 15-minute Hall finale featuring Doris Day and Jimmy Stewart on Sun 30th Oct.
