Neville the Starfish

Damian joined the Sir HvH Arts Foundation  graffiti art project in Hampstead Heath for “Neville the Starfish.”  Looks like Neville is getting some purple highlights from our favorite Ginger!

Youngsters used graffiti to transform a bridge linking Hampstead Heath and Gospel Oak. Children aged 8 to 18 spray painted the pathway leading from Savernake Road, as part of a charity scheme to encourage creativity and community engagement. The murals feature two steam trains made up of characters and creatures imagined by the children, drawing on the mystical and the magical.

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.

Damian makes trading look easy as he participates in the 15th annual BGC Charity Day 2019 on Wednesday, September 11, 2019 in London, England for CureEB and the Sir Hubert von Herkomer Arts Foundation.

First up was GFI Charity Day where Damian hit the trading floor for CureEB. CureEB is passionate about medical research and clinical trials that will help lead to treatments and a cure for Epidermolysis Bullosa, a severe genetic skin condition that leads to blistering and skin loss at the slightest friction. Children with the condition are often referred to as ‘Butterfly Children’ as their skin is said to be as fragile as a butterfly’s wings.
