Zero Night

Zero Night the greatest untold escape story of World War II. The scene is set in Oflag V1-B the prison camp in Warburg.  It tells of 40 British and Commonwealth officers who hatched the most original and daring escape from deep inside Nazi  Germany.

Months of meticulous planning and secret training hung in the balance during three minutes of mayhem as prisoners charged the camp’s double perimeter fences.

Returning to the Tollesbury WEA, Mark Felton will entertain with his thrilling account of this remarkable escape.   It’s a story so fresh that Hollywood is making a movie out of the tutor’s book.
