In Aid of Great Ormond Street Hospital.

Author, broadcaster, One Show reporter, Just A Minute regular, and editor of the Oxford Book of Theatrical Anecdotes, Gyles Brandreth, invites the legendary actress, Dame Judi Dench CH, to join him on stage at the Theatre Royal Haymarket, to talk about her extraordinary life and career.

From her childhood in York to her role as M in the Bond movies, from playing Ophelia and Juliet at the Old Vic sixty years ago to playing Mrs Shakespeare in Kenneth Branagh’s latest film this year, Gyles takes Judi on a roller-coaster ride through a unique life with amazing stories of her times with everyone from John Gielgud and Ian McKellen to Billy Connolly and Johnny Depp. ‘Hilarious’, ‘moving’, ‘spell-binding’ was how the show was described when Gyles and Judi were last on stage ‘in conversation’.

This very special event – in aid of the Great Ormond Street Hospital GOSH Appeal – is a not-to-be-missed opportunity to see our most-loved actress in person. Laughter and tears guaranteed. And moments from Shakespeare, too.

Presented by Fane Productions as part of the ‘Sunday Encounters at the Haymarket’ season.
