about this event
We are delighted to announce our latest fundraising event: An evening with Imelda Staunton and Jim Carter hosted by Cranleigh Arts Patron, Paul Jones, and Fiona Hendley Jones.
The two couples have known each other for many years and starred together in a National Theatre production of Guys and Dolls in the early 1980s. On Monday 7 October 2019, they reunite on the Cranleigh Arts stage to share stories from their extensive careers in film, television, theatre and music. The evening will conclude with an audience Q&A.
Imelda Staunton won the Best Actress BAFTA for her performance in Vera Drake, and is known for titles including Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, Shakespeare in Love and Pride. Jim Carter is best known for his role as Mr. Carson in Downton Abbey, a role that has earned him four nominations for the Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series. His film credits include Transformers: The Last Knight, The Golden Compass, and Shakespeare in Love. Jim and Imelda will be appearing together in the much-anticipated Downton Abbey film this September.
All proceeds support Cranleigh Arts (registered charity no. 284186) and Smart Cranleigh, helping us continue bringing high quality acts and arts activities to the local stage, and supporting social wellbeing in Cranleigh.
Please note, sales will be limited to 4 tickets per customer.
