The Charge of the Light Brigade: Half a Century Onward

A One-Day Symposium

Friday 18 May 2018, The Void Cinema, Sheffield Hallam University


Next year sees the fiftieth anniversary of the release of Woodfall Films’ epic production The Charge of the Light Brigade. While the film suffered from director Tony Richardson’s fractious relationship with the critics when it first appeared, it has subsequently assumed a totemic significance in British cinema history, embracing the anti-imperial values of the 1960s counter-culture in its depiction of one of the great disasters of British military history.
