The Delaunay Presents

AN EVENING WITH...

The Delaunay plays host to intimate evenings with some of the leading stars of the stage, screen or written word (and sometimes all three), as they share the secrets to their success.

Taking place on a Sunday evening, we invite you to join us for these exclusive events, showcasing the stories behind some of the leading names in the world of theatre, film, TV and the creative arts.

We’re delighted to reveal that the seventh guest in our exclusive series is the much-loved comedy colossus, Sir Tony Robinson on Sunday 20th November. Sir Tony’s comedic dexterity shone playing the role that made him: Edmund Blackadder’s lowly surf Baldrick – he of the cunning plan! Blackadder crowned Sir Tony as a great British King of Comedy – while, in 2013, he was knighted for public and political service. His love of country also spills infectiously into his many TV hit series, including Time Team, History of Britain, Coast to Coast and The Secret Life of the Thames.

Hosted by veteran journalist, Tim Wapshott, who will be in conversation with Sir Tony, there will also be the opportunity to put your questions directly to him.

Tickets are now on sale.

Doors open from 6.30pm for a 7pm start and the evening will finish by 10pm. Tickets are priced at £79 per person, including a welcome drink and a bespoke three-course meal.

 

Previous guests have included illustrious stars of stage and screen; Hugh Bonneville, Simon Callow, Dame Maureen Lipman, Nigel Havers, Patricia Hodge OBE and Alison Steadman. 

Tables are available for 2, 3 or 4 people – and the maximum table size available is for 4 people, this is to ensure all guests have an unobstructed view of our guest.

If you miss out on tickets, we will be running a waitlist in case any tables become available nearer the time. If you are a two and you would be happy to share a table of four with another two, please let us know when adding yourself to the waitlist.

As with previous events, we will announce our next guest to our mailing list first, so make sure you’re signed up to our newsletter.

Please note, tickets can only be booked online and not via phone or email.
