Thornbury Picture House: The Duke

Thornbury Methodist Church Hall

Thornbury Picture House presents The Duke

In 1961, Kempton Bunton, a 60-year old taxi driver, stole Goya's portrait of the Duke of Wellington from the National Gallery in London. It was the first (and remains the only) theft in the Gallery's history. Kempton sent ransom notes saying that he would return the painting on condition that the government invested more in care for the elderly - he had long campaigned for pensioners to receive a free television licence. What happened next became the stuff of legend. Only 50 years later did the full story emerge.
