THE TALE OF THOMAS BURBERRY

Premiered in November, ‘The Tale of Thomas Burberry’ comprises a three-minute cinematic trailer, reimagining key events that have shaped the company’s history and values.
 

The film stars Domhnall Gleeson as Burberry founder Thomas Burberry, Sienna Miller as Thomas’s fictional first love, Dominic West as Sir Ernest Shackleton, the pioneering polar explorer who wore Burberry gabardine for three Antarctic expeditions and Lily James as pilot Betty Dawson, a fictionalised character inspired by the real-life achievements of Betty Kirby-Green, who broke the world record in 1937 for a return flight from England to Cape Town in an aeroplane named ‘The Burberry’.
