Victoria and Abdul
Sun 29 Oct - Mon 06 Nov 2017
Judi Dench, Michael Gambon, Eddie Izzard, Simon Callow and Ali Fazal star in the extraordinary true story of an unexpected friendship during the later years of Queen Victoria’s remarkable rule.
When Abdul Karim, a young clerk, travels from India to participate in the Queen’s Golden Jubilee, he is surprised to find favour with the Queen herself. As the two forge an unlikely and devoted alliance, they are met with hostility from the royal household whilst the Queen begins to see a changing world through new eyes.
A true story of a friendship that survived every attempt to destroy it, ‘Victoria And Abdul’ sees Judi Dench reprise the role of Queen Victoria, 20 years after first playing her in ‘Mrs Brown’.
