Film screening of Operation Mincemeat in memory of Laurie

A special film screening of Operation Mincemeat will be held at Cinema City Norwich on Sunday 28th August – and you are invited to reserve your space.

The screening will be in aid of St Martins, thanks to the family of Laurie Herring, who are raising funds for St Martins in his memory. Laurie sadly died at the age of 18 in 2021, and as homelessness was a cause close to his heart, his family have been supportive of St Martins.

His mum Sarah said, “Our beloved boy Laurie loved the cinema – going to “the pictures” was one of the things he loved best in life. And he loved all kinds of film – dark, edgy, art-house creations through to blockbuster entertainment.”

Operation Mincemeat, which received great reviews on its release earlier this year, has an all-star cast including Colin Firth, Matthew
Macfadyen, Penelope Wilton and Jason Isaacs (with a – very small – special guest appearance by Laurie’s cousin Tom). It tells the story of
the Allies’ grand plot to fool the Nazis about their invasion plans for Europe.

Guests are invited for 11.30am for tea/coffee and pastries in the Cinema City Courtyard, with a special pre-screening talk at midday telling
the story of the homeless man, Glyndwr Michael, who was to play a central part in the Allies’ bold deception, followed by the film showing
from 12.30pm.

St Martins team members and some of the people we support will be there, and the invite is extended to anyone who supports St Martins – please do come along –  we just ask if you could make a donation to Laurie’s Legacy for St Martins by clicking here
