Magic Radio is spearheading the support of Bauer for The Prince’s Trust on its new fundraising campaign to help change young lives across the UK.

Activity will be broadcast on Magic plus a number of other Bauer brands including KISS, Planet Rock and Scala Radio.

The campaign will include special guest appearances, interviews and competitions with exclusive prizes provided by Prince’s Trust Corporate partners, including PlayStation, Cunard, The Watches of Switzerland and National Grid.

Together, they will aim to raise awareness of the issues young people are currently facing and ask listeners to be the turning point by donating to The Prince’s Trust. The campaign will air across September and early October, culminating in a Prince’s Trust Day on October 15th on Magic Radio.

Listeners can expect to hear from a whole host of household names across film, TV, music, comedy, sport and science, with Magic Radio seeing appearances from Geri Horner, Tim Peake, Dame Helen Mirren, Richard E Grant, Sir Ben Kingsley, Helen McCrory, Dominic West, Damian Lewis, Nile Rogers and Omid Djalili. Similarly, Planet Rock will hand their mic over to the likes of Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne and Mike Rutherford, while KISS will hear directly from young beneficiaries of the charity.

On Scala Radio, Stephen Fry will be holding a special one-off two-hour programme titled ‘Stephen Fry’s Showstoppers on Scala Radio: In partnership with The Prince’s Trust’ where he will open up about his love of classical music and his passion as an ambassador for The Trust.

by Gingersnap | damian-lewis.com | September 29, 2020

Just this past September 11, Damian brought awareness to the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF-UK) for The Hall School Triathlon Charity Appeal with this video message. It’s not too late to give, if you can, here. All money goes towards JDRF – UK’s leading Type 1 Diabetes charity.

Earlier in June of this year, Damian participated via Zoom in The Hall School’s “History Matters” series as part of their digital learning program, which focused on the boys’ curriculum. The school was honored to welcome Damian and hear him discuss his love of history.

Damian and Helen Attend Registry Office Wedding – Sept 24, 2020

The Wedding Singer

by Rianne Addo | DailyMail | September 24, 2020

Damian Lewis played the guitar alongside wife Helen McCrory at their friends’ wedding on September 24, 2020.

He showcased his musical side as he pulled out a guitar to perform at the wedding, held at Kensington and Chelsea Register Office in London on Thursday.

The Once Upon a Time…in Hollywood star, 49, was joined by his actress wife Helen McCrory, 52, as they celebrated the occasion by singing along to a series of classic Irish tracks. Helen proudly held up the Irish and Celtic lyrics for Damian to follow along.

As ceremonies and receptions in England set to be capped at 15 people from Monday as part of new coronavirus measures to curb a surge in cases. The screen stars’ pals were able to narrowly avoid the new restrictions as they marked their milestone with their loved ones.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson added that funeral services would be exempt from the limitations, with the maximum number of mourners remaining at 30.

Damian couldn’t contain his delight as he congratulated the newlyweds while strumming the strings of his instrument. Helen’s right arm was held up in a sling, nearly a year after she used a scarf to support the same limb during a night out.

Damian Returns to Host ‘Have I Got News For You’ – Sept 22, 2020

Seventh Time at the Helm

by Emma Kelly | Metro | September 22, 2020

Have I Got News For You is returning to its studio for its 60th series.

Series 59 of the long-running panel show was filmed virtually, from the panellists’ respective homes during lockdown.

However, the upcoming series, which will mark the show’s 30th anniversary, will be back in the studio, and hopefully with the reintroduction of a studio audience.

The audience at Riverside Studios in Hammersmith will be socially distanced and at a reduced capacity, while there are plans to have a second socially distanced audience watching the record from a separate screening room, with this audience’s live reactions being used to recreate the impact of a full audience.

While the audience is reduced, though, there has been no scrimping on the star power.

The first episode of the 60th series will be hosted by Homeland star Damian Lewis, who is returning for his seventh time at the helm.

Comedian Josh Widdicombe and journalist Katy Balls will be joining regular team captains Paul Merton and Ian Hislop as guest panellists, as the show marks three decades since Have I Got News For You’s launch on the BBC in 1990.

According to BBC 1 website here, episode one of the 60th series will air Friday, October 2, 2020 at 21:00 p.m.
