Get your tickets for a special screening of Disney’s ‘Young Woman and the Sea’ on 28 May

Disney’s Young Woman and the Sea will open in select cinemas on 31 May but we can offer Outdoor Swimmer readers the opportunity to see it at a special screening in London on 28 May.

Disney’s Young Woman and the Sea recounts the extraordinary true story of Trudy Ederle, the first woman to successfully swim the English Channel.

Daisy Ridley stars as the accomplished swimmer who was born to immigrant parents in New York City in 1905. Through the steadfast support of her older sister and supportive trainers, she overcame adversity and the animosity of a patriarchal society to rise through the ranks of the Olympic swimming team and complete the staggering achievement – a 21-mile trek from France to England.

Disney’s Young Woman and the Sea will open in select cinemas on 31 May but we can offer Outdoor Swimmer readers the opportunity to see it at a special screening in London on 28 May.

Tickets are free and offered on a first-come, first-served basis.

Disney’s Young Woman and the Sea, which also stars Tilda Cobham-Hervey, Stephen Graham, Kim Bodnia, Christopher Eccleston, and Glenn Fleshler, is directed by Joachim Rønning and written by Jeff Nathanson, based on the book Young Woman and the Sea: How Trudy Ederle Conquered the English Channel and Inspired the World by Glenn Stout. The producers are Jerry Bruckheimer, Chad Oman, and Jeff Nathanson, with John G. Scotti, Daisy Ridley, and Joachim Rønning serving as executive producers.
