The Royal Shakespeare Company's WhatsOnStage Award-winning production of Matilda will hold a special gala performance in aid of BBC Children in Need on 4 November 2014.

The evening will be hosted by Terry Wogan with a special appearance from the charity's mascot, Pudsey. BBC Radio 2 presenters will be in attendance alongside members of the public.

At least 50% of the proceeds from this performance will benefit the BBC Children in Need Appeal, and its work with disadvantaged children and young people across the UK.

The RSC's executive director Catherine Mallyon said: "Matilda's story resonates so strongly with the vision of this annual fund raising event, so it is great that we can help support its important work."
