Jonathan Pryce, who has gathered a merry band of fellow thespians to take part in the annual Friendship Works gala show and dinner on November 24 at the Café de Paris.
They’ll be raising funds for the organisation, which helps children and young people in London who need the friendship and support of a mentor.
Pryce will be singing two numbers made famous by the Ink Spots — Don’t Get Around Much Anymore and I Don’t Wanna Set The World On Fire.
Tom Hiddleston (busy rehearsing Coriolanus for the Donmar, about which I’m hearing great things) will give us his rendition of The Bare Necessities, while Homeland star Damian Lewis will sing On The Road To Morocco. Why? Because he’s just been filming there.
Janie Dee and Celia Imrie will perform songs from their cabaret acts. A seven-piece band will accompany all the artistes.
