Burberry’s 2016 Christmas Campaign

This year Burberry is marking Christmas with a special short film entitled ‘The Tale of Thomas Burberry’, celebrating the life of its founder Thomas Burberry, starring Sienna Miller, Lily James, Domhnall Gleeson and Dominic West.



The Tale of Thomas Burberry is a three-minute trailer, written by Academy Award-nominated Matt Charman and directed by Academy Award-winning Asif Kapadia. Gleeson plays protagonist Burberry, with Miller and James taking on the roles of mother of Burberry’s children and pilot Betty Dawson respectively – both fictionalised characters. West plays Polar explorer and patron of Burberry, Ernest Shackleton, whose expedition to the Antarctic in 1914 forms the central plotline.
