Acting For Others announces star-studded ambassadors list

Published 14 August 2018

Acting For Others, the charity that provides financial and emotional support to all theatre workers in times of need, has announced a star-studded list of ambassadors.

Jenny Agutter, Annette Badland, Christopher Biggins, Samantha Bond, Richard Eyre, Ben Forster, Lesley Joseph, Carl Mullaney, David O’Reilly, John Partridge, Wendi Peters, Cleve September, Harriet Thorpe and Hannah Waddingham constitute the exciting list.

The A4O Ambassadors will play an important role in supporting Acting for Others in helping the theatre community through taking part in events, encouraging others in the industry to contribute to the charity’s work and most importantly, raising awareness of the need to raise funds so as to be able to offer support to those in need.

Dame Judi Dench, President of Acting for Others, said today, “Acting for Others is exactly what it means, being concerned about everyone working in the theatre. I am proud to be associated with it and it is brilliant to welcome some of our supporters as Ambassadors. I congratulate everyone who has gone out of their way to contribute to its success.”

Acting For Others provides its invaluable support through 15 member charities: Actor’s Children’s Trust, Dancers’ Career Development, Denville Hall, Drury Lane Theatrical Fund, Equity Charitable Trust, Evelyn Norris Trust, Grand Order of Water Rats, International Performers’ Aid Trust, King George V Fund for Actors and Actresses, Ralph and Meriel Richardson Foundation, Dance Professionals Fund, The Royal Opera House Benevolent Fund, The Royal Theatrical Fund, Theatre Chaplaincy UK and The Theatrical Guild.

More information can be found, and donations made, on the Acting For Others website.

If you click through to seat selection (where you'll see either best available or a seating plan), you will be seeing the most up-to-date prices. If this differs from what we've written on the calendar, please bear with us, as those prices will update soon.

We now sell our famous TKTS Booth discounts online here at Official London Theatre.

We are now cancelling all performances up until and including 31 May 2020 to help us process existing bookings whilst we wait for further clarity from the government in terms of when we will be able to reopen.

We are so sorry that in these testing and difficult times you are not able to enjoy the show you have booked for and hope the following helps clarify next steps in respect of your tickets .

There is nothing that you need to do if your performance has been cancelled, but we do ask for your patience.

If you have booked directly with the theatre or show website for an affected performance, please be assured that they will contact you directly to arrange an exchange for a later date, a credit note/voucher or a refund. If you have booked via a ticket agent they will also be in contact with you directly.

We are processing in strict date order of performance, so you are likely to be contacted after the date you were due to go to the theatre. However, we want to reassure you that you will be contacted, and your order will be processed, but please do bear with us.

We’d like to thank everyone who has been patient and kind in dealing with their ticket providers so far and we are sorry that we cannot process your order as quickly as we would like.

Please do not contact your credit card company as that will slow the process down and put an additional burden on our box office and ticket agent teams.

In order for us to serve our audiences the best we can, please do not get in touch with your point of sale if you have booked for performances after 31 May. Please be reassured that if we have to cancel future performances you will be directly contacted by your theatre or ticket provider. Our producers continue to plan for all eventualities dependent on the individual needs of their shows and we will provide further updates on specific shows as and when they become available.

We look forward to welcoming you back into our theatres as soon as we are allowed to resume performances. In the meantime stay safe and healthy.

While theatres are currently closed, various venues and productions are making announcements for their individual shows, including cancellations and rescheduled performances. Please check with the individual shows for details.
