Retired Horse Dream Alliance Will Be Guest of Honor at Chepstow Race Course – Feb 26, 2020

Easter Monday Family Race Day

by Gingersnap | damian-lewis.com | February 26, 2020


To celebrate the upcoming release of the new movie Dream Horse, which is based on the true story of a horse named Dream Alliance, the legendary horse himself will return 10 years later as Guest of Honor and parade in the winner’s enclosure at Chepstow Race Course on Monday, April 13, 2020. He is one of the most celebrated horses in racing, bred on an allotment, who went on to win the biggest race in Wales, the Coral Welsh Grand National, 2009. The retired champ will hopefully be available to meet his fans throughout the day.

Dream Horse is inspired by Dream Alliance’s historic win and stars Damian Lewis, Toni Collette, Owen Teale and Joanna Page. Get ready for the feel-good film of the spring, as Dream Horse hits UK cinemas on April 17, shortly after Chepstow’s family fun day to coincide with the launch of the movie.

Chepstow’s gates open at 12:00 p.m., with first race at 2:00 p.m. and last race at 5:30 p.m. Children aged 17 and under enter free. To join in on the popular Easter Monday Family Race Day and for more information about tickets, please visit Chepstow Racing and Events here.

Voices of London – Oct 8, 2019

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.

And one of those secret actors is Damian! Both Helen  and Damian are patrons/ambassadors of the Sir HvH Arts Foundation.

Seems like Damian will be in town from filming Billions in New York City only two days prior to this event – specifically, on November 24 since he will be co-hosting the Evening Standard Theatre Awards in London with Helen.

To book tickets and for more information about Voices of London, please visit Lord Mayor’s Appeal.org here. For questions about the event, please email events@thelordmayorsappeal.org or call 020 7332 1582. Standard tickets are £100 and under 26-year-old tickets are £50. Tickets include a champagne and canapé reception, poetry readings and fundraising raffle. Dress code: smart casual.
