War Horse gallops on to screen

Sometimes something works even if it sounds like it shouldn't, like the life-size horse puppets used in the stage production of War Horse.

Since its first performance at London's National Theatre in 2007, War Horse has become an international smash hit seen by four million people.

Now you can enjoy this spectacular stage production from the comfort of a Lighthouse Cinema seat next Thursday – thanks to National Theatre Live, a ground-breaking initiative to broadcast productions from the London stage to cinema screens worldwide.

Based on Michael Morpurgo's novel and adapted for the stage by Nick Stafford, War Horse takes audiences on a journey from the fields of rural Devon to the trenches of First World War France.

At its heart are the astonishing life-size puppets by South Africa's Handspring Puppet Company, who bring breathing, galloping, charging horses to thrilling life on stage.
