Book now

Popularly known as the ‘Battle of the Bulge’, Michael Forrest recounts one of the largest and most costly campaigns of the Second World War, as the surprise attack by three German armies in the snow-covered Ardennes caught the Allies completely by surprise. The harsh winter conditions and the savagery of the fighting resulted in over 150,000 causalities, delaying the Allied advance into Germany by more than a month but exhausting the last reserves of the Germany army.

Tickets cost £5 and include light refreshments.
