The Giant Killers

Thu 25 Jul
The inspiring true story of football’s greatest ever underdogs.

Set in the early years of Association Football, The Giant Killers follows a ragtag bunch of Lancashire mill workers who defied all odds to become the first working-class team in the country to play in the FA Cup.

Unwelcomed by their upper-class opponents, the town of Darwen is fighting for more than just their place in the cup, and the eyes of the nation rest hope on their shoulders.

The battlefield is on the pitch, in a rip-roaring show full of sprit and passion that uplifts, enheartens, and will ignite a fire in everyone–whether you know the off-side rule or not.
