On Sunday 8 February 2009 Imelda Staunton will host a Cabaret Gala at the Almeida Theatre for their major annual fundraising event. Joining Staunton on stage for a night of cabaret entertainment followed by an exclusive party, will be fellow actors including Eileen Atkins, Henry Goodman, Nigel Lindsay, David Morrissey, Bill Paterson and Clive Rowe. Tickets, at £300, with a limited number of restricted view tickets at £150 and some exclusive premium tickets at £500, are bookable through the Development department on 020 7288 4936 or at www.almeida .co.uk The annual cost of producing the Almeida Theatreâs programme of work is approximately £3.3 million. Each year the Almeida must raise over £1.2m - more than its box office income or its government subsidy - to produce its artistic programme, to keep ticket prices affordable and to deliver Almeida Projects, the theatreâs work with young people and the local community. All funds raised through the Almeidaâs Cabaret Gala evening will contribute towards this target. Performers Imelda Staunton. Corporate SponsorCoutts and Co.
