With live piano accompaniment by Neil Brand and introducted by Ian Christie.

Maurice Elvey's remarkable chronicle of the life of the great Welsh politician was suppressed under mysterious circumstances in 1918 and never shown. It disappeared for 76 yearsbefore its rediscovery by the Wales Film and Television Archive.

Norman Page delivers a masterly performance as Lloyd George, as he moves from his early school and working life towards the pinnacle of his political career.

UK 1918 Dir Maurice Elvey 153 min

Due to the length of the film, there will be a short interval after approx. 90 min of the performance. As a result we expect the event to end at 7pm.
