* Queen and Country, the sequel to John Boorman’s 1987 film Hope and Glory, is being shown at the Arena next Tuesday and Wednesday, July 28 and 29.

Hope and Glory featured nine-year-old Bill Rohan celebrating the destruction of his school by a wayward Luftwaffe bomb.

Queen and Country picks up the story nearly 10 years later, as Bill (Boorman’s alter ego), begins training in readiness for battle in the Korean War.

Bill and his mate Percy never reach Korea but find themselves in a constant battle of wits with their superior, Sgt. Major Bradley (David Thewlis).

Performances are at 7.30pm both evenings with a Wednesday matinee at 1.30pm. Tickets for the matinee are £5 and for evenings they are £7 or £5 concessions.
