Tom Hardy, Daniel Craig, Judi Dench, Maggie Smith Read “Twas The Night Before Christmas”
Daniel Craig, Tom Hardy, Judi Dench, Maggie Smith, Joanna Lumley joined Prince Charles in a reading of ” ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas… “
The poem was recorded in support of the Actors’ Benevolent Fund, of which The Prince of Wales has been Patron for over 20 years taking over the role from Her Majesty The Queen in 2000.
The charity supports actors and stage managers who are unable to work due to illness, injury or old age and those experiencing financial hardship particularly during the Coronavirus pandemic.
This year has been particularly difficult for those working in the industry and in April the charity launched an Emergency Grant Fund to support those in their profession who are experiencing financial hardship owing to the pandemic.
