General information

As the military consultant on Steven Spielberg’s film, War Horse, Andrew Robertshaw was involved in the production of the film from the early days of the screenplay to the last day of filming. He even ended up with a small acting role!

Andrew, who is Director of the Royal Logistic Corps Museum in Camberley, a veteran of Channel 4’s Time Team and an expert on trench warfare, will explore the magic of making this hugely successful film from his unique perspective.

War Horse

Andrew is the author/co-author of a number of books on First World War history including 24HR Trench, The Platoon, Digging the Trenches and Ghosts of the Somme. He has also created a unique trench system in his back garden to give visitors a flavour of life in the trenches.

Tickets £6 (concessions £5) only available from The Lightbox box office (Tel: 01483 737837).
