A SPECIAL screening of the ‘The Secret Spitfires’ film is to take place on Uniform Services Day in Trowbridge in September.

Uniform Services Day will celebrate the contribution made by the UK’s uniformed services, including the armed forces, the NHS and the police, fire and ambulance services.

You can now book tickets for the special screening of 'The Secret Spitfire' at the Civic Centre at 2pm on Saturday, September 10.

Cllr David Vigar said: “If you haven't seen this film, I recommend it. It tells the story of how Spitfire fighter planes were secretly assembled across the South West in World War Two, including at Trowbridge's Spitfire Park.

“It is fascinating and funny - with workers looking back on life in hidden workshops and nights out with American soldiers.”

The film was inspired by Norman Parker, 96, from Amesbury, whose interest in the WW2 fighter plane and the history he collected on the Secret Spitfire factories over the years.

The screening is taking place with help from Selwood Housing and the Starry Eyes Performance Foundation to raise funds for Alzheimer’s Support.

The ticket price of £9.50 includes a cream tea, a talk from Trowbridge Museum and a nostalgic sing-along led by the Wiltshire Council Singers.
