Event Details

Join us for the premiere of a brand new documentary produced in conjunction with the Soldiers of Gloucestershire Museum exploring the Battle of Imjin River and its lasting legacy in Gloucester. The film will highlight the extraordinary personal testimonies of the men who fought on the Imjin, and how on the 70th anniversary its story and impact continues to be felt.

This is followed by a discussion with the Korean Ambassador and SOGM Chair Christopher Ryland – with a filmed contribution from Jeremy Hunt MP – chaired by Gloucester MP Richard Graham exploring how the links forged in war between the UK and Korea are recognised and relevant today as part of the UK’s Indo-Pacific pivot, and what role Gloucestershire can play in this.

This is a pre-recorded event which will be available from 9am on 25 September to 9pm on 31 January 2022.
