Dames Judi Dench and Maggie Smith will be treading the boards together and Downton Abbey star Jim Carter will be hosting a Q&A session in support of the playhouse in Kilburn High Road.

All monies raised through the ‘In Conversation With’ events, with go towards the theatre’s activities, including its extensive creative learning programme and the capital development project which is currently taking place.

Mr Carter said: “It’s wonderful to be returning to the Tricycle, one of London’s most vibrant theatres, to talk to these legendary figures of stage and screen, in what I hope will be an unmissable series of events.”

The first of the three events will take place on February 5.

Indhu Rubasingham, artistic director of the Tricycle, said: “We’re enormously grateful to Jim and his wonderful guests for their time and support for the company.

“I am excited and thrilled that the Tricycle will be hosting these very special artists for a unique series of events that will not only help us to fundraise, but also provide an extraordinary experience for our audiences. I can’t wait.”
