The actors are set to take part in a Q&A, along with the film’s director Sir Richard Eyre, after a screening at the theatre, in Kilburn High Road, on January 18.

Downton Abbey star Jim Carter, who lives in West Hampstead, is hosting the event having previously curated similar screenings for the Tricycle.

Iris tells the story of British novelist Iris Murdoch and her relationship with husband John Bayley.

Actress Kate Winslet plays a young Murdoch alongside Hugh Bonneville as Bayley, while Ms Dench and Mr Broadbent play the couple in later years.
