Damian Lewis Scheduled to Perform at CarFest 2024

Musical Acts Announced

by Benjamin Jackson | National World | April 12, 2024

The family-friendly festival CarFest, created by radio presenter and former Top Gear host Chris Evans, has announced a second wave of artists for this year’s event, complementing an already eclectic mix of acts performing over Bank Holiday Weekend 2024.

With the festival having already announced their first wave of acts, including Olly Murs (who also is headlining Flackstock this year), Eurovision favourite Sam Ryder and reggae legends UB40 comes a deluge of acts from those halcyon Cool Britannia days of old.

As revealed earlier this morning, Richard Ashcroft, Johnny Marr and the Scissor Sisters’ Jake Shears will be performing at this year’s event, while a throwback to the past sees Kula Shaker performing on a festival stage once again – we weren’t joking about the Cool Britannia vibe.

They are also joined by legendary Ibiza DJ Judge Jules, Homeland actor Damian Lewis, Johnny Hates Jazz and CarFest’s favourite Dr Rangan Chatterjee will also be hitting the stage with his very own band

It will be a jamboree! Get ticket information here.

Next up is Pub in the Park at Chiswick House and Gardens in Chiswick ahead of musician Jools Holland on Sunday, June 30. Pub in the Park is billed as the ultimate crossover of food and music – one of the hottest foodie destination this summer. The festival has carefully curated a line-up of award-winning and Michelin-starred eateries and you’ll be able to hop between pop-up restaurants to feast on exclusive menus created by the nation’s best chefs and restaurants, all the while listening to brilliant live music.

by Gingersnap | damian-lewis.com | March 26, 2024

Damian hosted a private viewing of the “DoNotDisturb” art exhibit on March 26, 2024 at the Alon Zakaim Fine Arts gallery in London, showcasing exclusive photography pieces and black and white sketches of Helen McCrory and other celebrities to support the Sir Hubert von Herkomer Foundation and to honor The McCrory Award.

Funds raised from the charity event will sponsor three young HvH Arts Foundation artistic beneficiaries who will be bestowed The McCrory Award mentorship. The inaugural event launched back on June 15, 2022.

Debbi Clark, photographer and CEO/Founder of HvH Arts Foundation, and Sadie Frost also co-hosted the occasion, with a visit from the Mayor of Camden. The event was curated by stylist Marcella Martinelli. Others in attendance at tonight’s private exhibit were Damian and Helen’s children Manon and Gulliver.

Images of Helen, Damian, Cillian Murphy, Jude Law, Benedict Cumberbatch, Eddie Redmayne, Billie Piper, James Purefoy, Andrew Scott, and many more were donated in support of the private viewing and some images were launched via the online catalogue to browse for purchase through donation and pledge to support the charity.

The pieces were donated by professional photographers Debbi Clark, Ray Burmiston, David Venni, Clive Arrowsmith, Ian Derry, Charlie Gray, Lorenzo Agius, Tony Vaccaro, John “Rankin” Waddell , Ram Shergill, Terry O’Neill, plus black and white sketches from artist Nina Mae Fowler.

The foundation – which Helen was the former Patron of and is now patroned by Damian – gives access to free art and media workshops for disadvantaged children “…so they can express their inner artist” and flourish.  This includes, but not limited to, photography, film making, sculpting, cooking, music production and song writing, drama, poetry, dance, crochet, fine art/painting, graffiti street art and much more. View more images from the event in our Gallery here.
