with Gyles Brandreth

‘Dancing By The Light Of The Moon’

In aid of Great Ormond Street Hospital

Theatre Royal, Haymarket
Sunday 15 September 2019 at 3pm

GYLES BRANDRETH (author, broadcaster, One Show reporter, Just A Minute regular, and editor of the Oxford Book of Theatrical Anecdotes), invites national treasure JOANNA LUMLEY to join him on stage at the Theatre Royal, Haymarket, to talk about her extraordinary life and career – and to share and perform some of her favourite pieces of poetry.   From her childhood in Kashmir to starring on Broadway, from her days as a model in the Swinging Sixties through The New Avengers to Absolutely Fabulous, Gyles takes Joanna on a roller-coaster ride through a unique life with amazing (and frequently hilarious) stories of her times with everyone from David Niven to Will.i.Am – interspersed with magical moments from some of her favourite poets, from Edward Lear to John Betjeman.   

Proceeds from this very special event are going to the Great Ormond Street Hospital GOSH Appeal and the Theatre Royal Haymarket Masterclass Trust - nurturing young people though theatre and the arts.  

This is a not-to-be-missed opportunity to see one our most-loved actresses in person.  Laughter and tears guaranteed. 

Everyone in the audience gets a free copy of Gyles Brandreth’s new anthology of poems to learn by heart – Dancing By The Light Of The Moon, signed by Gyles.

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