A star studded line up in the Kiln Cinema will combine a screening and Q&As in support of the Kilburn arts centre
Jim Carter has once again called upon famous friends and colleagues to help him support his local theatre the Kiln.
Over the years, the West Hampstead actor has arranged sold out talks and screenings with A list stars - with ticket proceeds going towards the Kilburn arts centre.
Next up, Dame Helen Mirren will be in conversation with the Downton Abbey star on February 16 at 5pm.
She will discuss her stellar career from stage to screen roles, such as her Academy award winning performance in The Queen.
The event takes place in Kiln Cinema at 5pm and tickets at £125 and £95 will support the Kiln's innovative productions at prices that make theatre available to the local community.
