Event Details

Multi-award-winning actress Emma Thompson and actor and producer Greg Wise will be joined by special guests, including comedian Bill Bailey, Caitlin Moran, Game of Thrones actor Emilia Clarke with host Deborah Frances-White, to celebrate their new book, Last Christmas.

Last Christmas brings together the star-studded contributions of many other actors and writers - among them Bailey, Olivia Colman, Meryl Streep and Frances-White - as well as refugees and charity workers, to explore what Christmas means to them.

Thompson and husband Wise have been campaigning for human rights for decades as ambassadors for ActionAid, supporters of Greenpeace and patrons of the Refugee Council. In the spirit of the festive season, they will be donating all their proceeds from the sales of the book to Crisis and The Refugee Council.

Join them, with The Guilty Feminist host Deborah Frances-White and a line-up of very special guests, as they come together for a joyful evening of readings, conversation and a celebration of all things Christmas.

All tickets to this event come with a copy of Last Christmas (RRP £14.99). 50% of the profits from this event, will go to Crisis and The Refugee Council.

Running time: 90 minutes, no interval.
