Further details have been announced for the Old Vic's one-night-only bicentenary variety night fundraiser, which takes place on Saturday 12 May.

Olivier Award-winner Sheila Atim will team up with actor and musician Arthur Darvill to perform a selection of original songs, including a brand new composition for the Old Vic's birthday.

Hosted by the Horne Section, other new acts announced today include a jazz trio by Kansas Smitty's, UK Team Beatbox Champions Burd, comedian and actor Tim Key and hula hoop dancer and fire performer Silvia Pavone.

The event, which will see the auditorium transformed into a cabaret space, will also feature previously announced entertainment from sketch comedy duo The Pin, the company of upcoming hip-hop musical Sylvia, The McOnie Company, and an exclusive performance written by Dennis Kelly.
