The Delaunay Presents

AN EVENING WITH...

Each month The Delaunay will play host to an intimate evening 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 Sunday evenings every month, 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 are delighted to reveal that our guest for October will be the star of stage and screen, Alison Steadman OBE. Tickets will go on sale at 10:00am on Monday 3rd October.

Book tickets

From her breakout performance in Mike Leigh’s ‘Abigail’s Party’ in 1977 to her beloved role as Pam in ‘Gavin and Stacey’, Alison is a true icon whose career has spanned more than 50 years on the stage and the screen – and earned her countless awards and accolades along the way.

Doors will 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.

 

Each event will be hosted by veteran journalist, Tim Wapshott, who will lead the conversation with our guests to draw out their unique stories – and there will also be opportunities to put questions directly to the star themselves. Our first event was with award-winning actor, Hugh Bonneville; the second was with acclaimed writer, director and actor, Simon Callow; the third was with star of the stage and screen, Dame Maureen Lipman; and our fourth event was with the ever-popular Nigel Havers, followed by Patricia Hodge OBE, in September as our sixth guest.

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.
