Here’s something you won’t want to miss – the trailer for the amazing Battle of Britain at 75 BBC special that is being streamed from Biggin Hill to cinemas all over the country.
As well as promising to be a fantastic show – whether you catch it live or in your local cinema – the event is raising money for three RAF service charities, including the Battle of Britain Memorial Trust. We are delighted to be part of this unique event, which takes place on the evening of Friday 18 September.

The Battle Of Britain At 75 will tell the epic story of the greatest aerial conflict of the Second World War live from the Rizon Jet hanger at Biggin Hill airfield – the most iconic of Britain’s fighter stations.
Presenters Dermot O’Leary, Jeremy Vine and Sophie Raworth will be joined by the BBC Concert Orchestra, musicians from the armed forces and guest singers as they share compelling stories from the Battle.
As well as being enjoyed by the audience at Biggin Hill, the multi-media extravaganza will be streamed live to cinemas right around the UK, offering thousands more people the chance to see and hear the anniversary tribute to the men of the RAF and those who supported them in 1940.
