The venue is the Actors' Church – St Paul's, Covent Garden – and there will be readings, music and a chance to indulge in mulled wine and mince pies. Simon Callow, Laurie Holloway, Kenny Lynch, Peter Polycarpou and Samantha Spiro are among those intending to appear (as always where hard-working performers are concerned, attendance is subject to availability).
Music will be provided by the West End
Gospel Choir. Tickets priced at £15.00 are available from The Royal
Theatrical Fund (020 7836 3322), or you can email the Fund
