Critically-acclaimed West End play War Horse will be staging a special show on November 10th that offers a unique insight into the design process that went on before the production opened in London.

Theatre fans are invited to discover how Rae Smith's design illustrations went from the page to achieve life on the stage for the one-off event, which should prove a treat for both newcomers to the play and old hands.

The event will also feature a reading from the writer of the original young adult story that sparked the entire production - Michael Morpurgo - who will read from War Horse as well as his heart-warming short story The Best Christmas Present in the World.

BAFTA award-winning actress Virginia McKenna is also scheduled to appear, as well as the much-loved a capella group Voices at the Door, who well get everyone in the festive spirit with a number of Christmas carols.

For easy access to London's Theatreland and everything it has to offer, stay at the Montague on the Gardens hotel. If you're in the capital for a special reason, make it a Night to Remember with the specially-tailored package.
