A Night of Poems and Poets Inspired by the Great City of London
by Gingersnap | damian-lewis.com | October 8, 2019
The Lord Mayor’s Appeal will be hosting their first ever poetry night called Voices of London on Tuesday, November 26, 2019 from 6:30-8:30 p.m. Join the Lord Mayor and Lady Mayoress for a night of inspirational poetry in the magnificent setting of the Mansion House in London.
The event is curated by Allie Esiri, Helen McCrory, and Kate Birch with a line-up of other celebrated (and secret) actors and vibrant contemporary poets performing work inspired by the great city of London, all in the effort to raise money to help support their charity partners OnSide Youth Zones, Place2Be, Samaritans, and Sir Hubert von Herkomer Arts Foundation.
Let’s hope one of those secret actors is Damian since Helen will be in attendance and the fact that both Damian and Helen are patrons/ambassadors of the Sir HvH Arts Foundation.
Plus, Damian should be in town from filming Billions in New York City only two days prior to this event – specifically, on November 24 he will be co-hosting the Evening Standard Theatre Awards in London with Helen. Crossing our fingers!
