Swiss Premier - Class of '92 only at The Great Escape

This Sunday The Great Escape is proud to present the Swiss premier of the footballing documentary 'Class of '92'. The Great will be open from 12h00 serving lunch and the screening begins at 12h30 followed by Man Utd vs Liverpool from 14h30.

The Class of 92 is a cinematic documentary detailing the rise to prominence and global sporting superstardom of six supremely talented young Manchester United footballers (David Beckham, Nicky Butt, Ryan Giggs, Paul Scholes, Phil and Gary Neville).

The film covers the period 1992-1999, culminating in Manchester United's European Cup triumph, dramatically showing the highs and lows of this amazing football odyssey alongside the immense social and cultural changes taking place in Britain at the time.
