The Tricycle Theatre has announced a new series of ‘In Conversation With’ events, including evenings with directors Danny Boyle and Paul Greengrass, and a joint conversation with Dame Judi Dench and Dame Maggie Smith.

Tickets for the events with Greengrass (5 February) and Boyle (12 February) cost £25, and £100 for Dames Dench and Smith (26 February), with money raised going towards the Tricycle Theatre's activities including their creative learning programme.

The events, which will feature an hour long conversation followed by a Q&A session, will be hosted by Downton Abbey star Jim Carter.

Talking today, Carter said: "It’s wonderful to be returning to the Tricycle, one of London’s most vibrant theatres, to talk to these legendary figures of stage and screen, in what I hope will be an unmissable series of events."

Booking opens to Tricycle Theatre members at 1pm on 12 December, and to the public at 1pm on 14 December.
