Damian and Alison frolicked in the sea as they enjoyed a romantic beach getaway in St Tropez on Tuesday, August 8, 2023. The happy couple took a dip in the ocean, swimming in the sunshine, before sharing an embrace and some PDA! The pair continued their vacation at celebrity hotspot and popular costal venue Club 55 in the South of France and Damian took a stroll along the picturesque coastline.
Alison is just coming off a promotional tour from New York to Los Angeles for her band The Kills’ new album release with two new singles titled New York and LA Hex, while Damian is resting up before his 8-date UK tour begins, as well as being on break from filming The Radleys. In fact, if you look closely at more photos in our Gallery, you may spot Damian sporting some fake tattoos from his role in the movie. Here’s to more fun in the sun and cooling off in those clear blue waters! Happy vacationing you two!

Damian and family take a summer vacation, escaping to Apokofto Paralia – Chrysopigi, Sifnos – a little island off the coast of Greece lined with blue round rooftops. Artist Frantzeska Michail shared on Instagram that he loved their island and food, and they loved him, too! Apokoftos is a picturesque bay that lies on the left side of Chrissopigi, only 2 km from Apollonia, the capital of Sifnos. The beach consists of sand and white pebbles while rocks and crystalline waters compose an idyllic surrounding that attracts many visitors. It is an ideal escape from the noisy crowds providing unique moments of relaxation and tranquility. What a perfect getaway, celebrating end of school term and a much needed break from filming The Radleys and performing all his recent music gigs. Get some much needed R&R, Damian!
There were sightings of Damian and family vacationing in Italy with his brother Gareth Lewis earlier this month and now it seems Damian has made the trek over to Portugal, no doubt to meet up with his nephew Tom Yaxley in Madrid who is on his penultimate day of the Ride4Hugo biking campaign in support of Damian’s nephew and Tom’s brother Hugo, as well as Helen McCrory. More information about that here.
Damian stopped in to dine at the restaurant Borda do Cais located in Ferragudo, Portugal on Thursday, July 21, 2022. The restaurant specializes in fresh fish and shellfish, complete with a wine cellar. More information about the restaurant here.

Damian was in good spirits last night at the private member’s club, The House of Koko’s, inaugural summer party in London. The beautifully designed new member’s club is set backstage at London’s iconic Koko theatre, which reopened in April of this year and Damian attended that event as well here. The last night’s summer party included an impromptu live jam in the Penthouse where musicians and artists entertained members and guests in one long live session as club-goers danced.
Others in attendance were Jamie Hince, Alison Mosshart (both band members of The Kills), Ellie Goulding, singer Dionne Bromfield and film director Darren Strowger seen pictured here. Familiar faces as Damian, Helen McCrory and Darren Strowger all attended the Bob Dylan and Neil Young’s British Summertime Gig in the Teen Cancer America Suite at in Hyde Park in July, 2019. Read about that here. Also, Damian and Strowger attended last year’s UEFA Euro Final together and you can view photos of that 2020 event here.

Time to rev up those engines! Damian was seen at the Formula 1 British Grand Prix meeting ‘92 champion Nigel Mansell in the paddock and was given a tour of the Red Bull Racing garage, taking time to visit with British singer-songwriter Sam Ryder. Damian even met Stefano Domenicali, CEO of the Formula One Group, prior to the race and provided a grid walk interview with Martin Brundle. The 2022 Grand Prix of Great Britain took place over 52 laps of the 5.891-kilometre Silverstone Circuit on Sunday, July 3 in Northampton, England. It was reported Damian was right in the action filming the cars from the side of the track as the drivers left the starting grid for their formation lap and at one point shot the t-shirt cannon into the crowd of the fans (picture below). Carlos Sainz – driving for Ferrari – won for the first time in F1, with Sergio Perez and Lewis Hamilton coming in second and third, respectively.

Written By GingersnapComments Off on Damian Lewis Attended Launch of National Gallery’s Fundraising Campaign for Bicentenary Celebrations 2024
The Alchemist’s Feast
by Alastair Sooke | The Telegraph | June 23, 2022
Damian attended ‘The Alchemist’s Feast,’ an inaugural summer party and fundraiser for the National Gallery’s Bicentenary campaign, NG200. Tonight’s event – which was held Thursday, June 23, 2022 in London, England – launched a fundraising campaign for the gallery’s bicentenary celebrations scheduled for 2024. “We do lots of things at the National Gallery which are very serious and scholarly,” says its director, Gabriele Finaldi. “So, it’s perfectly OK to generate some excitement and glitziness as well.” Sitting in a sparse office overlooking Trafalgar Square, Finaldi – a deep-voiced, patriarchal figure, who, at 57, has already run the gallery for seven years – is referring to a red-carpet event taking place there tonight: London’s answer, if you like, to the extravagant Met Gala held every spring at the Metropolitan Museum in New York.
National Gallery will exhibit a Van Gogh blockbuster as part of its 2024 bicentenary celebrations, provisionally being subtitled Poets and Lovers, and is scheduled to run from September 2024 to January 2025. Star loans include The Bedroom, Garden of the Asylum and—of course—the exhibition will show the museum’s own Sunflowers.
And Finaldi hopes that the party’s theme, “The Alchemist’s Feast”, will encourage guests to turn the base metal of goodwill into the gold of donations – because the gallery’s ambitious plans, which include a series of “significant” capital projects, will cost £95 million. Other guests in attendance included Sienna Miller, Olivia Buckingham, Jasper Conran, Ben Radcliffe, Sandy Powell, Emma Ridgway, David Grievson, Lara Stone, Geordie Greig, Kathryn Greig, Grayson Perry, Emily Beecham, Lily Lewis, Rish Shah, Iman Vellani, Hamish Bowles, Ikram Abdi Omar, Olga Kurylenko, Benedict Wong, Martha Ward, Joely Richardson, Tom Hughes, Alfonso Cuaron, Kim Hersov, Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi, Princess Beatrice of York, Nick Broomfield, Samantha Bond, Alexander Hanson, Marc Quinn, Joe Bromley, Sofia Blunt, Gabriela Peacock, Oli Green, Joseph and Sabine Getty and Ellie Bamber.

United By Play
by Gingersnap | damian-lewis.com | June 12, 2022
If you thought the World Cup was going to be the biggest sporting event of the year, think again because the world’s biggest celebrity football match Soccer Aid is back! The annual star-studded charity football match returned today, Sunday, June 12, 2022, playing at West Ham’s London Stadium at Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in Stratford, but not before training sessions at Champneys Tring in Wigginton, North Yorkshire days prior.
There were footballing greats and celebrities involved in this year’s game, and off-pitch the show was presented by UNICEF UK Ambassador Dermot O’Leary, joined by Maya Jama and Lionesses legend Alex Scott returned as pitch-side reporter. Kick-off began at 7:30 p.m. BST and coverage of the event aired on ITV television, with streaming available via ITV website and ITV Hub.
There was even a half-time musical performance from Soccer Aid founder Robbie Williams, who performed his famous hit ‘Angels’ and an appearance from UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador David Beckham.
During arrivals at London Stadium Damian had a short interview and predicted the match result as 4-1 in England’s favor. While on the pitch he further elaborated and claimed England would indeed win it. He was asked if it was a coincidence that England lost without him in the last three years and he said it was one of the biggest coincidences. 😉 View video of that portion here. At the half-time mark the match was tied 1-1 as Damian donned jersey number 66 and played in the second half. He missed a sitter, as he looked certain to score, but dragged the shot wide. Damian looked stunned and gutted! And we were gutted for him. At 84 minutes in, Damian spotted Tom Grennan’s dart into the area but he was offside. Going into tonight’s match the two teams were tied with five wins each after 10 matches, yet this match ended in a 2-2 draw at full-time, going into penalties. World XI scored four penalties and England scored one. The winning Team was World XI, with a final score of 6-3. Sorry Damian! See Damian’s score prediction here.

Lockdown Exodus and A Brave New World
by Gingersnap | damian-lewis.com | April 13, 2021
Ambassador and now Patron Damian Lewis joined the Sir HvH Arts Foundation Summer Exhibition Festival production in London on Monday, August 30, 2021 for the ‘Lockdown Exodus’ exhibition that celebrated young people’s work in art, music and photography, and a performance by ‘A Brave New World’ visual arts theatre dance production by talented young artists. Throughout the day the project hosted taster workshops with their artists in residence in fashion deconstruction, tie-dye, screen printing, oils, acrylics on canvas, and photography. About a hundred community families gathered to see the musical performances, as well as art and photography produced by youth who had taken part in free sessions funded by donations and Camden Council. Up to 60 youngsters a day had been taking part in projects over the summer.
Ambassadors Sadie Frost and Michael Palin were also in attendance, who mentored young people for a film they made during lockdown called Isolation Stories. Students were also directed by the charity’s artists in residence, Selina Giles and Lily Alice Clark, and actor Peter Youngblood-Hills offered mentoring sessions.
The event was also held to remember former patron Helen McCrory. Debbi Clark, CEO and Founder of Sir HvH Arts Foundation has set up the “McCrory Award” in her honor, which will be dedicated to supporting disadvantaged children and young people who are gifted in their art, yet many do not have access to the resources or training to fulfill their potential. According to Hampstead Highgate Express, Debbi Clark stated Helen would always be a patron of the charity and was still with them “in spirit.”
