MIDSUMMER PARTY FOR THE OLD VIC
SUN 23 JUN
THE BREWERY, 52 CHISWELL ST, LONDON, EC1Y 4SD
The Old Vic has been telling stories for 200 years. We invite you to be part of our story at The Old Vic’s Midsummer Party.
The masterminds behind the smash hit film, The Greatest Showman, Michael Gracey and Ashley Wallen, will get the party started with a show-stopping opening number; the cast of SYLVIA make their eagerly anticipated return to the stage, previewing brand new material; and there will be a sneak peek of Local Hero ahead of its London premiere at The Old Vic: a musical described by The Guardian as ‘joy on tap’, with music and songs by the legendary Mark Knopfler (Dire Straits).
Live jazz will underscore the evening thanks to Ronnie Scott’s All Stars, and the night will end on a high with soul legend Beverley Knight, followed by dancing on the stage.
WINING AND DINING
Champagne Taittinger, Fortnum & Mason wines, Greene King beers and Absolut cocktails will accompany a summer solstice three-course feast. Enjoy an exclusive auction and surprise guests during the evening.
WALK THE RED CARPET
Arrive in style to the red carpet alongside a host of Old Vic friends, performers and supporters, including Jade Anouka, Kim Cattrall and Dermot O’Leary.
As a registered charity receiving no regular subsidy, the Midsummer Party will raise crucial funds to help sustain The Old Vic for the next 200 years.
