IT’s the last call for fans of the iconic film Zulu to get a seat at the premier, showing off rare footage of the evergreen favourite that, since 1964, has been a top British war film.

Film producer and director Henry Coleman will be screening to the public for the first time rare footage of the making of the film in Kwa-Zulu Natal at the height of apartheid at The Friends of The Royal Welsh regimental Museum Zulu Dinner on October 15 at Dering Lines in Brecon.

The dinner continues to build the relationship between two adversaries in the Anglo Zulu War of 1894, upon which the film that launched the career of Michael Caine was based – the Zulus and 24th Foot that became the South Wales Borderers regiment. Special guests at the dinner include the South African High Commissioner and Queen Nompumelelo Zulu, as well as descendants of soldiers who won the VC at Rorke’s Drift.

Mr Coleman is making a documentary film ‘Zulu and the Zulus’ telling the story of the making of the film from the Zulu perspective, and will be joined by Glyn Baker, who was on the set with his father Stanley Baker, along with Michael Caine, and Jack Hawkins.
