BHS announces competition for preview of 'War Horse'

22nd December 2012

The British Horse Society (BHS) is giving 20 lucky people the chance to win a pair of tickets to Steven Spielberg's eagerly anticipated epic film War Horse.

The screening will take place in a London location, on the morning of Sunday 8 January 2012 and is an amazing opportunity to get a first look at the film.  War Horse is released across the country on Friday 13 January  and is sure to be the highlight of every horse enthusiast's year.

DreamWorks Pictures' "War Horse," director Steven Spielberg's epic adventure, is a tale of loyalty, hope and tenacity set against a sweeping canvas of rural England and Europe during the First World War. "War Horse" begins with the remarkable friendship between a horse named Joey and a young man called Albert, who tames and trains him. When they are forcefully parted, the film follows the extraordinary journey of the horse as he moves through the war, changing and inspiring the lives of all those he meets – British cavalry, German soldiers, and a French farmer and his granddaughter – before the story reaches its emotional climax in the heart of No Man's Land.

The First World War is experienced through the journey of this horse – an odyssey of joy and sorrow, passionate friendship and high adventure. "War Horse" is one of the great stories of friendship and war – a successful book, it was turned into a hugely successful international theatrical hit that is currently on Broadway. It now comes to the big screen in an epic adaptation by one of the great directors in film history.

To celebrate the release of the film, The British Horse Society have 20 pairs of tickets up for grabs in a competition that will guarantee you will be the envy of all your friends!
